London:: Police arrested a naked man who streaked past crowds just before former Olympian Steve Redgrave was to handle the Olympic torch.
Thames Valley Police say they arrested the 27-year-old man on suspicion of outraging public decency. The incident took place Tuesday in Henley, some 35 miles (55 kilometers) to the west of London.
Redgrave was setting off on a boat in the River Thames as the flame makes its 8,000 mile (12,875 kilometer) journey ahead of the Olympics, which take place from July 27 to Aug 12.
Police have warned spectators to stay away from the flame as it travels across Britain and Ireland, and incidents of people interfering with its journey have been rare so far.
