Max took two gold medals – securing gold on the floor and pommel horse – on what has been dubbed ‘Sensational Sunday’.

In recognition of his achievement, Nissan will now present him with the keys to a LEAF completely wrapped in brilliant bright gold – on his return to the UK.

Nissan Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes returning from Rio with a gold medal will be presented with a gold Nissan LEAF, making it one of the most limited edition Nissan models ever.

Nissan is the official automotive partner of Team GB and ParalympicsGB and has been delighted by the success of its other competing ambassador athletes so far, including first gold LEAF winner – rower George Nash, for his win in the men’s coxless-four.

Chris Marsh, Marketing Director at Nissan Motor (GB), said:

“Max has been a Nissan ambassador since we first launched our partnership with Team GB and so many of us at Nissan have had the pleasure of working with him and getting to know him as he prepared for the biggest sporting night of his life.

“We are all so proud to have him associated with Nissan and he’s the perfect person to be a recipient of one of our gold LEAFs.”
