The story of “jimmybrownpants” unfolded live on the social networking site Twitter and flashed around the world.

And the actions of Mr Woodhouse won praise from a welter of celebrities - including ex deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, World Champion boxer Lennox Lewis and footballers Andrew Cole, Joey Barton and Robbie Fowler.

Mr Woodhouse, 32, had suffered a torrent of offensive personal abuse on Twitter from an internet “troll” calling himself The Master, after his controversial defeat against Shayne Singleton for the English light-welterweight title on Friday.
