PsyDADS have been warned to stay away from drunken Gangam Style dancing after a father-of-three died in front of his wife when he finished performing a Gangnam Style dance.

Eamonn Kilbride, 46, collapsed with chest pains in front of colleagues at a Christmas party.

He had just danced to Gangam Style by Psy, the South Korean musician, which has had been viewed almost a billion times on YouTube.

Prof Bernard Keavney, consultant cardiologist at Britain's Newcastle University, told The Daily Telegraph men should be "measured" at Christmas parties and warned them not to "stray outside your comfort zone".

He said: "As with any form of untypical exercise that you're not used to taking, be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you.

"If you're unused to taking vigorous physical exercise, you shouldn't throw yourself into violent exertion without due preparation."
Mr Kilbride was attending an office party for the Thwaites brewery in Blackburn, Lancashire, on Saturday night.
