The cameraman who discovered a body during the search for missing TV doctor Michael Mosley has shared the moment he realised what he had found. Antonios, the local cameraman who stumbled upon the body this morning, broke down in tears as he was interviewed by Sky News.

On Sunday, June 9, it was tragically confirmed that a body had been found in the ongoing search for the beloved TV doctor, who went missing on Wednesday on a holiday with his wife Clare on the Greek island of Symi. The body was discovered under a fence by a bar near Agia Marina.

In an emotional segment on Sky News, Antonios, revealed he had used an iPhone to take a picture of the screen on his camera to allow him to zoom in. He said he could see then that it appeared to be a man "lying down" with "his hand on his belly".
