Beckham balls up on E-bay

Much to everyone's surprise, it appears that Beckham's infamous vertical penalty in Euro 2004 DID actually land in the stadium and is not currently part of the UK's next Mars mission. The Spaniard that caught the ball, concealed it under his shirt in a seemingly convincing pregnancy impression, has decided to auction it on E-bay.

True to form, there's yet another cock-up as pranksters have placed false bids up to 10 million Euros, meaning embarrassment for E-bay as they try to authenticate the actual bid, with a climbdown to a 23,650 Euros top bid.

Rumours that the top bidder is Alex Ferguson looking to fill a few gaps in the trophy cabinet have not been confirmed...
