Rio Ferdinand is livid this morning after reading a story in the 'soon to be gone' News of the World. He didn't buy the paper but it was shown to him by a neighbour.
He is so angry that the journalist in question twisted around what really did happen.
This is Ferdinand's version (the true one) of the story.
Ferdinand actually popped a pap. He's never even been close to Pippa although he doesn't deny he wouldn't mind meeting her.
Rio was, apparently, out jogging yesterday evening seeking to enjoy a little privacy from the media, when a member of the Paparazzi jumped out of a bush and started to pap him. That's when Rio took action and 'popped the pap'.
Rio didn't draw blood and no charges were laid by either party.
Now Rio understands why the newspaper is going out of business and he named a few more which, in his opinion, should be blown off the face of the earth too.
