However, we have our doubts about the veracity of the information. We have found the property, which still seems to be for sale, and the asking price is real; but really, as anyone who has ever bought some property will tell you, let alone a multi-million pound residency, these things do not get sorted out in less than two weeks.

3) 'LOOK AT HIS FACE' - Commentator Barry Davies parodies his famous line during Ice Bucket Challenge Legendary sports commentator Barry Davies became the latest sports figure to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday – adding a slight twist to the rather jaded format.

Davies parodied his renowned commentary from Manchester City’s clash with Derby in 1974 which culminated in the phrase, “Just look at his face!”

After receiving his icy blast of water, Davies proclaimed: “Just look at my state, just look at my state!” 

Top job Barry!

5) REAL MADRID, WHERE'S YOUR TROOSERS - Falcao's dad explains why son did not join Real Madrid

Radamel Falcao's father has confirmed Real Madrid were in a position to sign the striker, but eventually chose not to.

Falcao joined Manchester United on a season-long loan from Monaco after a swirl of rumours that he would be moving to the Bernabeu.

"The deal with Real Madrid did not happen because if you have money and you go to the market to buy a shirt or a pair of trousers, you have to decide whether to buy it or not," Falcao's father Radamel Garcia said to Colombian radio station LA FM.

"Real Madrid chose not to. I don't know, I have the feeling they wanted the player for free with a number of conditions. In any case, they bought the trousers and shirt they wanted and they considered that to be better. We have to accept it."

Wait…is he still talking about his son?
