A sports star who we're unable to name for legal reasons has been arrested for unlawfully re-writing a history book.

The sports star is said to have copied bestselling "The Twentieth Century" by Helen Daniels and re-written certain key items, before re-publishing the book in his own name.

According to the new version of the book, re-titled "The 20th Century", Hairstyles were invented in 1908 by a man called Martine, and World War One was officially re-named The Beef War.

The sports star is pleading guilty to the crime, but in a statement from his/her lawyers, the star is claiming complicity with sports-radio presenter Erik Sylan: "During a recent sports gathering with my client, Sylan was clearly heard to say that my client could easily 're-write the history books'...which my client took as a challenge."
