Fred­die: I woke up ‘deadie’!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CRICK­ETER An­drew ‘Fred­die’ Flintoff woke up from a rou­tine op­er­a­tion to find that friends and fam­ily thought he was DEAD!

Fred­die was forced to deny the ru­mour af­ter an In­dian pa­per claimed that the sports­man had died in hospi­tal.

Re­tired cricket star Fred­die ( above), 34, was stunned to read re­ports that he had died on the op­er­at­ing ta­ble dur­ing mi­nor knee surgery.

He said: “It got re­ported once in the In­dian press that I’d died.

“I’d only gone in for some surgery on my knee, but some­thing got lost in trans­la­tion and I started get­ting texts and emails from peo­ple check­ing I was alive.”

But the English star has done lit­tle to quash the ru­mours of his demise – a Google search for ‘Fred­die Flintoff dead’ gen­er­ates a huge 1,780,000 re­sults!
