Let K be a bounded closed convex subset of a real Banach space of dimension at least two. Then the set of the support points of K is pathwise connected and the set NA1(K) of the norm-one support functionals of K is uncountable in each nonempty open set that intersects the dual unit sphere. In particular, the set NA1(K) is always uncountable, which answers a question posed by L. Zajicek.
