Mark Roberts streaked after the 100m men's final
A serial streaker who targets high-profile events has been warned by a judge after he sprinted naked at the Commonwealth Games.
Mark Roberts, 38, of Liverpool, was charged with causing a public nuisance following his streak, performed in front of the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
But the prosecution offered no evidence at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday and Mr Roberts was bound over to keep in peace in the sum of £400.
Mr Roberts ran down the track at the City of Manchester Stadium in July last year, after the men's 100-metre final.
After viewing an amateur video of the incident, prosecution counsel Jamie Hamilton said he had difficulty in proving the charge of public nuisance because the crowd was cheering and clapping.
Chris Stables, defending, said his client's agreement to be bound over to keep
the peace was no admittance of the offence.
I enjoy the buzz of it all
Mr Stables told the court: "As he crossed the finishing line his image was flashed up on the large screens."
Judge Martin Rudland said a different view may be taken by the court if Mr
Roberts is caught streaking again.
He added: "You should be aware of that as you conduct yourself in the future."
Mr Roberts had "The Snack" written on his chest and "Just for Fun and Games" on his back when he ran the race, wagging his finger at the crowd.
Speaking outside court Mr Roberts said he
would abide by any orders made by the court.
But he later said he had no plans to "retire".
"I enjoy the buzz of it all," he said.
"I have done so many major events
and every time get the same response.
"It's all about creating humour."
The court was told that Mr Roberts has six previous convictions in connection
He has previously been seen at Hampden Park, Glasgow, for the Champions League
final and at Wimbledon.
