A newly-crowned Olympic fencing champion proved he hasn't let fame go his head when taking his medal home on the tube.

Venezuela's Ruben Limardo gave his fellow travellers a sight to remember when boarding the Jubilee line with his prize around his neck.

A beaming Limardo posed for photos as he stood in the carriage on the London underground.

Comedian Omid Djalili posted a link to a picture on Twitter and wrote: "I was hoping for an image like this during #Olympics2012"

If Usain Bolt did the same, it would probably bring London's transport infrastructure to a grinding halt.
