Just in case you were under the illusion that the Olympic Stadium pitch was set to rotate 90 degrees at the end of the season, we have a confession to make.
This morning's story entitled 'More changes at the Olympic Stadium' - in which KUMB reported that the pitch at the OS was set to be rotated by 90 degrees was an April Fool (in case you hadn't guessed).
You may see our previous efforts to hoodwink you below...
