Legendary boxer Mike Tyson was spotted making a brief public appearance on the island of Mykonos in Greece on Tuesday. The 57-year-old former heavyweight champion, renowned for his remarkable career of fifty victories, including forty-four by knockout, was enjoying his time at a restaurant in the town of Ornos.

During his visit, Tyson displayed a moment of joy when he heard a Michael Jackson song playing. He couldn’t resist the urge to dance and move to the music, showing off some of his signature moves. However, his good mood was short-lived.

A fan approached Tyson, hoping to snap a selfie with the boxing icon. Tyson’s irritation reportedly flared up, and he promptly asked the fan to leave. The situation didn’t escalate, and the fan left without further incident.

Charming Mykonos as a Magnet for Celebrities

The charming island of Mykonos has proven itself to be a magnet for many vacationing celebrities. Hollywood actors Matt Damon and the Hemsworth brothers, Chris and Liam, were spotted vacationing there this June. The trio was seen enjoying the island’s sandy beaches and vibrant dining scene.

Damon was accompanied by his wife, Luciana Barroso, while Liam Hemsworth was seen with his girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks. Damon was spotted dancing and sharing a Mythos beer, a famous Greek lager, with his wife. Additionally, Matt Damon and Liam Hemsworth were seen having dinner at a steakhouse on Mykonos, and a fan even managed to snap pictures with them.

George Clooney also visited the island in June for the event organized by Omega. The American actor and filmmaker was seen exiting the VIP area of the Mykonos airport and seemed to be in good spirits, chatting with airport staff and appreciating the beautiful weather on the cosmopolitan island.

Windmills of Mykonos

One of the most prominent sights with a rich history that attracts many visitors to Mykonos is the windmills. These traditional structures harnessed the perpetual island winds for grinding grains such as barley and wheat into the early 20th century. Mykonian windmills were typically circular stone buildings with small windows and pointed wooden roofs. Their tops featured twelve wooden fan blades covered in strong fabric, which converted energy to grindstones on the lower floors when the winds blew.

At its zenith, Mykonos had over twenty-five windmills, with ten forming the Kato Mili complex near Alefkandra harbor, a strategic point for trade. The flour produced there was used for rusks, a long-lasting bread vital for sailors. As modernity brought electricity, traditional milling ceased. Today, sixteen windmills stand on Mykonos, some transformed into stores, homes, or accommodations, bearing witness to the island’s agricultural heritage.
