I bet he was NOT smiling after that either. bored.gif

Quote:A man with Parkinson's Disease was arrested during the Olympic cycling road race and questioned about why he was not smiling.

Mark Worsfold, 54, a former soldier and martial arts instructor, says he was effectively detained for not enjoying himself shortly before cyclists passed through Red House Park in Leatherhead, Surrey on July 28.

Mr Worsfold, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's two years ago, suffers from muscle rigidity in his face which means it is not always obvious that he is smiling.
