In a surprise move announced today, Colonel Gadaffi said he was throwing in the towel - or at least that bright orange thing he sometimes wears on his head - and is accepting the job offered to him by Lord Coe to become manager of the Dockland's Light Railway.
The Colonel is expected to take up the post in time for the Olympics.
The fact that the Docklands trains are driverless is not thought to be a factor that affects Mr Gaddafi's employment prospects in this particular job.
Lord Coe said that 'Moo', as he affectionately calls him, is perfectly suited to this important job.
He said Moo will be able to sit in the front of the train and make the funny raspberry noises three-year olds make when they sit beside mummy in the car pretending to drive - although it is the child who pretends to drive, and not mummy, unless mummy comes from Essex and only does a really bad impersonation of a driving mummy.
The trains are being retro-fitted with a windscreen-wiper on the inside to accommodate Mr Gaddafi when he makes the child-like, raspberry driving noises as he undertakes this vital task of driving the trains that need no driver.
