Tramp is internet star
Thursday, July 5, 2007
A 78-year-old tramp who can tell the time without a watch has become an internet star.

Gordon Roberts, who lives in Bournemouth, has had a site dedicated to him on Facebook, reports the Sun.
And it already has more than 4,500 members after just a few weeks.

Gordon was already well known in Bournemouth for his extraordinary ability to know the time within two minutes without wearing a watch.
Local man Chris Kimber, 24, decided to set up an appreciation group on networking site Facebook.

But people from all over the UK began signing up - and users from Australia, America and South Africa are now joining the fun.
Creator Chris, a Bournemouth University student, said: "I thought it'd be fun to set up a group around Gordon, but I did not expect it to take off."

Fans have even arranged a party for members - who must dress like their hero - in Poole on July 29.
When asked about his fame, Gordon said: "I heard about it, but I don't know much about it."
