THE OLYMPIC MEDAL _ IT’S ALL IN THE DETAIL!

OK, so we’re still all very much in ‘Rio mode’ here in the studio at the moment with the Olympics now in full swing and the Team GB medal tally increasing by the day.

Ever wondered how the newly crown olympians get their hard earned prizes back to ‘Blighty’ safely?

Well, take a look at these beauties!

What we don’t see at the medal ceremonies is that each medal comes with their own beautiful storage box—shaped like a pebble and made of wood, these boxes are certainly lovely enough for their precious content.

According to these images, it would appear that this unique storage box opens with a sliding mechanism that slice it in two to reveal the medal inside—it also has a magnetic closing to keep the medal safe.

It’s all in the detail!
