This post at Daily Mail identifies the world famous Cigar Guy.

Cigar Guy’s real name is Rupesh Shingadia.  He is a single, 30-year-old investment analyst in London, who lives in a house with his parents.

I am embarrassed and overwhelmed.  Never in a million years could I have expected anything like this. It is truly surreal.

The Look Explained

Cigar Guy’s outfit was a tribute to pony tail wearing, cigar smoking Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.

I wanted to do something to show my support for the European team and I thought of Miguel. These days sportsmen have become devoid of character. But Miguel does his own thing and I love the way he walks around the course with a cigar clamped between his teeth.
