Boxer Charlie ‘the Mailman’ Flynn made a splash when he officially opened an American Hot Tubs branch last weekend.

And while the Commonwealth Games gold medallist may occasionally have to duck in the ring, he met the plastic variety when he took to the water in the Epoch House showroom.

The sportsman delighted everyone attending an Open Day by chatting and signing autographs.

The new Grangemouth business has been set up by brothers Richie and Andy Winning from Bo’ness. Andy already runs a boiler firm in neighbouring premises and the pair decided to open the new company offering people an affordable way of owning a hot tub in their home.

Richie said: “Saturday’s Open Day was a great success with over 600 people coming along. Hot tubs are becoming increasingly popular, whether it is for social side or health reasons, in gardens or summer houses.

“We are delighted to sponsor Charlie who is quickly becoming one of Scotland’ sporting celebrities after his success at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.”
