Streaker disrupts Olympic torch relay
A streaker has disrupted the Olympic torch relay by jumping out in front of an official runner while holding a fake flame.
The naked man, who had 'Free Tibet' daubed on his back, covered only a short distance before being tackled by police officers.
He was quickly covered in a blanket by police and led away from the event in Henley-on-Thames.
It happened just before the torch was handed to Britain's most successful Olympian, Sir Steve Redgrave.
Andrew Tinsley, an environmental scientist from Henley, said: "The guy came out of nowhere. He definitely picked his moment to shine.'
"The juxtaposition of the bus relay logo of a running man and the streaker was immensely funny."
A Thames Valley Police spokeswoman confirmed that a 27-year-old man from Henley has been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency.
