A weekly newspaper’s front page wraparound and golden masthead marked an Olympic triumph for an athlete from its patch.
The Cornishman paid tribute to rower Helen Glover with the wrap, pictured below, which featured on Thursday’s edition of the Penzance-based newspaper.
Helen, who was born in Truro and grew up in Penzance, took gold in the coxless pairs in Rio de Janeiro along with partner Heather Stanning.
Glover and Stanning also won the same competition at the previous Summer Olympics in London.
Editor David Thomas said: “We went all guns blazing when Helen won the gold in 2012 – and she has gone from strength to strength since then, so we thought we needed to do something really special to mark her historic achievement.
“We got the design team to create the wrap-around front page which we hope will prove to be a suitable souvenir for the proud people of Penzance.
“Most importantly, Helen has given it a thumbs-up via Twitter.”
