One of the top players in the Premier League was called as a character witness
in a matrimonial case and, on being asked his profession, replied, 'I am the greatest
footballer in the world!'
After the case was over he came in for a good deal of teasing from his team-mates.
'How could you stand up in court and say a thing like that?' they asked.
'Well,' he replied; 'you must remember I was under oath!'
