Ever heard of Bournemouth University’s beloved Gordon the Tramp? Gordon Roberts, with his large beard and Manchester United scarf, is famous for always knowing the time despite not owning a watch. Not actually a tramp, Roberts, in his eighties, lives in Charminster in Bournemouth. An online campaign was started in July 2011 to elect him as a carrier in the Olympic torch relay. Gordon told the Bournemouth Echo, "I might do it if I was asked but it would depend on what I was doing that day." Gordon did not carry the torch.
