A tramp has become famous on the internet after thousands joined a website set up in his honour.
Mr Roberts's social internet site now has more than 4,500 members
Gordon Roberts, 78, was already well-known in Bournemouth, Dorset, for his ability to tell the time despite not having a watch.
Mr Roberts shot to wider fame when Chris Kimber, a 24-year-old Bournemouth University student, set up a Facebook site in his honour, "Gordon the Tramp".
His social internet site now has more than 4,500 members.
About 200 fans join the site every day from as far afield as Australia, the US and South Africa.
The fan site credits Mr Roberts, who wanders the streets of Bournemouth with his trademark white beard, football scarf and Parka jacket, as attracting tourists to the seaside town.
The website states: "Gordon the Tramp, possibly the most famous person in all of Bournemouth. No wonder so many tourists venture down South every year."
Fans have uploaded pictures of themselves with the cult figure with stories about meeting him.
One fan wrote: "Gordon is well-chuffed. I saw him in town the other day and we had a quick chat about the group and he asked me to send everyone his best wishes."
A video of Mr Roberts has also been posted showing him accurately telling the time to a group of youngsters.
