The former Derby County and Nottingham Forest manager, Brian Clough, who many in those areas held to be immortal, died in 20, but may have gone beyond the realms of mere mortals and come back to life - as the Secretary of State for Wales, Simon Hart.
'Cloughie', as he was known, earned the nickname of 'Old Bigmouth' for his outspokenness, but he was also regarded as something of a footballing genius, and, to many, was 'the greatest manager England never had'.
After last week's Tory election victory, however, Clough looked to have taken significant steps towards making a comeback after he was named in Boris Johnson's new cabinet, but with a new name and a new identity.
Clough was always associated with his green sweatshirt as he patrolled the touchline, with his blunt responses to inane questions posed by interviewers, and with his red cheeks, always ready for a tipple.
But he donned a grey suit, white shirt and black tie yesterday, as news of his resurrection hit the headlines.
Or is it just be an uncanny likeness to Simon Hart, who I've never heard of.
