Nothing to see here

Mark Roberts, born and bred in Liverpool, has an interesting hobby - Streaking. He first started streaking in early 1993 in Hong Kong at the Rugby Sevens tournament. Roberts has since gone on to become the world's most famous nudist.

He has exposed himself at over 150 events worldwide and secured sponsorship for many of his recent declothings - Golden Palace Casino. He often shows up at the really big sporting events so it is no surprise that he made a visit to Turin.

At first Roberts says he it was embarrassing but now it's just like getting in the bath He claims to enjoy the thrill and the crowd laugh. Roberts recalls his first venture into the non-clothes zone:

The crowd stood up, roared and cheered having not seen anything quite like this before. When I eventually came off the pitch I was caught by a British Policeman who said "Sorry Mate, but I'm going to have to nick you!” Then a Chinese reporter said to me that if I streaked again in the same match I could perhaps make it into the Guinness Book of Records! That was a chance too good to miss!!! I'm half way there already I thought! So, an hour later I was back on the pitch again!

From there, he was literally off to the races. Next, he streaked a Chinese football match in the Viceroy Cup. People in the streets were said to be going streaker crazy, beeping their car horns and shouting S-T-R-E-A-K-E-R! And so, the legend was born.

What is most interesting about Roberts is that he will now do streaks for charity. It puts philanthropy into a new light.
