In a matchmaking feat that would make Cupid proud, Metro has ended a lovesick German tourist's torment and found the mystery man she has been looking for since November.

The good news for Melanie Speth is that the man is single and, being the romantics we are, Metro has offered to fly her over for their first date.

Our newsdesk was inundated with calls after we featured a picture yesterday of the man Miss Speth, from Miltenberg, spotted on the Tube during a brief trip to London.


She took the photograph on her mobile phone and has been e-mailing his image around the world. Yesterday morning he was revealed as commodities analyst Ben Moon, after his colleagues contacted Metro – but not before plastering his picture up in their office and giving him a standing ovation when he walked in.

Mr Moon, of South-West London, said: 'I saw my picture when I was reading over someone's shoulder. I thought I was getting funny stares.'

The 27-year-old, who split from his girlfriend two weeks ago, plans to get in touch with Miss Speth.

He added: 'I will e-mail her as soon as I can. She looks lovely in her picture.'

As for Miss Speth, well she's over the, ahem, Moon. She thanked Metro, adding: 'Ben is single – that is nice information!'

Wow so he had a girlfriend and dumped her by telling her in the newspaper! What a man!
