When confronted, he could not produce any proof of identity and the doctors called the police and handed him over to the police. But all his claims fell flat after the doctors found him participating in a marathon organised by the doctors on Saturday.
Recent concerns regarding the misuse of personal data and "the addictive nature of social media" also played a part in JDW's decision to remove itself from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, the statement continued.
