The entire World awoke this morning in disbelief after learning that Robert Mugabe was yesterday the Best Man at Wayne and Coleen's Wedding which was held at the beautiful fortress of Villa Durazzo overlooking Santa Margherita on the Italian Riviera.
The British press had been speculating that David Beckham or Steven Gerrard would be doing the honours but it appears that everyone has been hoodwinked.
Gianna Costa the local Mayor and former footballer spilled the beans by informing Sky News way ahead of Hello Magazine publishing the official photographs.
Costa hidden in a tree managed to get close enough to the Wedding Party to capture some shots of Mugabe performing the Best Man's Role with his extended zoom lens.
Hello Magazine who paid Wayne and Coleen two and half million pounds for exclusive rights to all photography of the wedding are absolutely furious and are reported to have stopped the cheque.
It appears that everyone has been taken in believing that Mugabe was in Italy to attend a food conference when in fact he was really there for the wedding.
Rooney as an Ambassador for the United Nations visits Zimbabwe regularly to coach the kids how to play football.
Apparently Mugabe and Rooney have become such firm friends that Mugabe has taken out a Private Box at Old Trafford for next season.
