Zinedine Zidane's famous head butt was one of the sporting highlights of the year and now an April fool joke involving him has made headlines around the world. FIFA, the governing body of football, has been forced to issue a statement saying that reports suggesting that Zidane has won the player of the year award are not true. The entire world media latched on to the story printed by a Spanish newspaper, which claimed that Zidane had won the award but that it had been accidentally given to Italy's Fabio Cannavaro. The April fool joke came about at this time of the year because Spain celebrates its version of All Fool's Day on December 28.
