I would like to ask about the point movement on the torus knot.

 rr = 3;
torus[u_, v_] := {(rr + Cos[2 Pi u]) Cos[2 Pi v], (rr + Cos[2 Pi u]) Sin[2 Pi v], Sin[2 Pi u]}
Toro = ParametricPlot3D[torus[u, v], {u, 0, 1}, {v, 0, 1}, 
   Boxed -> False, Axes -> False, MeshStyle -> None];
Knot = ParametricPlot3D[torus[u, 2 u], {u, 0, 1}, Boxed -> False, 
   Axes -> False];

It's look like:

Tortus and knot image

And I want to animate the point movement on the torus knot.

How can I do this?
