His name was on the tip of everybody’s keyboard for hours following a cryptic tweet from the Sky Breaking News twitter feed: Colin.
The mysterious Colin soon began to trend on Twitter. However, the tweet - which simply said "Colin was here" - has now been deleted, with Sky blaming the tweet on a hack.
In a statement, the news channel said: “Earlier today the @skynewsbreak twitter feed was hacked and a single message sent.
“Action was swiftly taken and we are working with Twitter and our in house security to ensure this cannot happen again.”
It looks like we will never discover the true identity of Colin.
We take a look at those jumping on the Colin joke:
