image for Sir Alex Ferguson thought to have passed away following Manchester United's defeat
Loyal Barcelona supporter turns up the day after the match

Paramedics, doctors and other medical experts were rushed into the football stadium in Rome straight after the final whistle to attend to what they thought was an extremely ill Sir Alex Ferguson following Manchester United's defeat at the feet of Barcelona.

At first it was thought that Sir Alex had suffered a stroke, heart attack, a sudden reduction in salary or some similar affliction. However, a concerned Manchester United squad were relieved to discover all that had happened was that Sir Alex had stopped chewing gum for a couple of moments.

A spokesman from Chigleys, who sponsor Sir Alex's incessant chewing, was said to be relieved. He added that the whole affair could have become very messy, which would have added even more confusion to the situation given the similar surname of one of Barcelona team's members.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
