The Post Office has now confirmed a post box in School Road, Bagnall, will be painted gold in Lee's honour.
This will be the second gold post box for the Staffordshire Moorlands, as one in Derby Street, Leek, has already been painted after Olympic rower Anna Watkins won gold in the women's double skulls with Katherine Grainger.
