Bedding In

‘“SUN NIL,” announces the Sun, and for once it has a good excuse for crow-barring its name into a headline.

John Terry

The paper reports that Chelsea Football Club recently asked its hard-working, under-paid players if there was anything extra they required.

All answered: “World peace, justice, respect for all cultures and creeds, and sunbeds in our new training centre at Cobham.”

The club is understood to have agreed to their request, and phase one – the sunbeds – will be implemented as a top priority.

The paper prints a picture of John Terry and Frank Lampard “as they might look after a session”. It doesn’t say what kind of session, though, so readers must make their own minds.

In case you don’t have a copy to hand, the picture has been altered to make both players look very orange.

Both are grinning like idiots and John Terry appears to have a bruise on his forehead.

Dangerous things, those night-club sunbeds.’
