A rose by any other name...

Wayne Rooney has been Shrek of the year by other actors at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Manchester United striker, who has scored 34 goals this season, beat off competition from Didier Drogba, Carlos Tevez and Cesc Fabregas.

Rooney, 24, said: "It's a great feeling to win because it's voted for by other cartoon heroes. It's a great honour and I'm really proud."

The young Shrek of the year award was won by Aston Villa's James Milner.

Rooney has blossomed in a land, far, far away this season after the departure of fairy Cristiano Ronaldo and ugly sister, Carlos Tevez.

He has played in a more advanced role than in previous seasons and has added powerful magic ability to his overall performance.

But he injured ankle ligaments in the first take of United's re-make of Shrek 4, and missed Saturday's cartoon win over Tottenham with a groin injury sustained in voice-over work.

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