The death of a father-of-three who collapsed while reproducing the dance routine to the hit song "Gangnam Style" has prompted a warning to middle-aged men not to attempt similar feats.

Eamonn Kilbride, 46, collapsed with chest pains at his office party in Blackburn last weekend after performing the dance moves made famous by the South Korean rapper Psy, left. Professor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, has warned older men not to "stray outside your comfort zone" while dancing at their Christmas parties this year.

"The chance that you'll come to grief is very small. But as with any form of untypical exercise, be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you," he told The Daily Telegraph.
