The man who filmed the dog chasing deer in Richmond Park - which has become an internet sensation - has been tracked down.

Speaking to Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show, Ali Goodyear, 37, resolved much web debate about the dog's name.

Goodyear said: "I was just there with my son, Jake, and we were filming the deer and then all of a sudden a man just basically loses control of his dog.

"Fenton by the way, with an F - it's not Benton, everyone's calling it Benton - The dog just run off into the distance, chasing the deer."



He added: "I've been inundated with people from CBS, CNN, Good Morning America , German newspapers. I don't know what to do. I might get Max Clifford on it!"

"Fenton", "Benton", "Richmond Park" and "Jesus Christ" have all been trending topics on Twitter in recent days as the video has been shared among web users.

A number of parodies and remixes of the clip have also been produced.
