Mind that Judge!

Argentine tennis ace David Nalbandian has started off a Falkland War feud after kicking out at British line judges at a Wimbledon warm up tournament at Queens Club yesterday.

Nalbandian claims he was kicking an advertising hoarding out of frustration after losing a point to opponent Marin Cilic from Croatia.

As he connected with the hoarding he also took a chunk out of line judge Andrew McDougall's leg, leaving the judges leg bleeding and in some distress. He was immediately disqualified and the title was awarded to Cilic despite him trailing by one set in the match.

Intelligent services are now trying to establish if this could start the second Falklands War. Reports recently suggested that the Argies have sent more troops to the island, and the UK have responded by sending Prince William and his navy buddies out to the Islands.

The second coming of the falkland Wat could start within weeks, meaning Nalbandian's participation at Wimbledon would be frowned upon, & footballers like Luis Suarez and Carlos Tevez could be booed at stadiums around the country when the season restarts (so whats new? - Ed)

A spokesman for the government today dismissed all claims, stating it was just a sporty howler. A Lord Leveson style inquiry into sport ethics is expected to be announced by the end of the week in Parliament.

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