Half-naked man oils himself up then pole-dances on the London Tube

This is the bizarre moment a commuter stripped off on the Tube and oiled himself up before dancing around a pole.

Onlookers said the lubricated man then swung around the metal pole in the centre of the carriage and danced around for four minutes.

In true British style, most of the fellow commuters continued to stare at their smartphones or look away while he slipped and slid in the oil left on the floor.

One commuter said when the train came to a standstill at Bank, the semi-nude man simply got off and walked through rush hour crowds, covered in oil, in just his underwear.

The unusual encounter happened at around 6.45am on November 12 on a DLR tube train heading towards Shadwell.
