In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

Fifa has said it has no information from the North Korean management regarding rumours that four players have defected. The team sheet for North Korea's match on Tuesday recorded Kim Myong-Won, An Chol-Hyok, Kim Kyong-Il and Pak Sung-Hyok as "absent". The North Korean team is reportedly holding a press conference at 3pm today, so more information may come to light. However, this is a North Korean press conference, so perhaps we'll be as much in the dark as ever by the end of it.
