The body of missing British TV presenter Michael Mosley has been found near a beach on the island.

A Greek TV crew from ERT spotted a body on Sunday morning a few metres from the beach of Agia Marina on a rocky hillside as they were filming from a boat.

The mayor of Symi Lefteris Papakalodoukas then confirmed the body was Mosley's.

By Sunday morning, the search and rescue operation had focussed on a network of water-filled tunnels in a rocky area near the coastal town of Agia Marina.

It's believed Mosley had set off on a walk along a nearby coastal path on Wednesday afternoon and had been missing ever since.

Mosley is well-known in the UK for his regular television and radio appearances and his column in the Daily Mail newspaper.

He became known abroad for his 2013 book The Fast Diet, which he co-authored with journalist Mimi Spencer. The so-called 5:2 diet set out how people can lose weight fast by minimising their calorie intake for two days a week while eating healthily on the other five.

He has subsequently introduced the Fast 800 diet, a rapid weight loss programme, and has made a number of films about diet and exercise.

Mosley has often pushed his body to extreme lengths to see the effects of his diets and also lived with tapeworms in his guts for six weeks for the BBC documentaryInfested! Living With Parasites.
