When a Malawi news site reported the recent death of Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer it used a picture of Arnold Saunders, the very much alive emeritus rabbi of Higher Crumpsall and Broughton Synagogue. How come the mix-up?
It must have found an old story online, about some disgruntled Man Utd fans who wandered into a pub and, mistaking Rabbi Saunders for Mr Glazer, tipped a glass of beer over him.
The African site later corrected the picture.
