Other information KISSING THE QUEEN
After being unable to compete in the Commonwealth Games in 2006 due to a management mix up, he returned home to the Cook Islands after being selected to meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in Melbourne. He took the liberty of taking the empty seat next to the Queen and although against royal protocol, gave her a kiss on the cheek as he left. The incident received a great deal of media attention in the Cook Islands although he was not reprimanded for breaching protocol. (telegraph.co.uk, 31 Mar 2006)
