Hillary Clinton was busy with a press photo call with the chief executive of Hong Kong at a hotel in Hawaii, when she was distracted by a man running past in a loincloth.

Chester Centino has been lighting Tiki torches around the Hilton Hawaiian village with a flame for seven years - and saw no reason to stop.
