Two four one

The Times has two non-stories for the price of one on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Firstly, Ronaldo is not moving to Real Madrid. This is a classic football non-story where the papers report that someone is going to move and when it doesn't happen say it has fallen through. Admittedly, the Guardian has made the running on this one.

Then the Times reheats the non-story about Ronaldo throwing "a hissy fit that challenged the authority of Sir Alex Ferguson". As far as I saw, Ronaldo stood still for a few seconds while Ferguson got on with things, then walked off and knocked a training top out of a trainer's hand (rude, I know) and then sat out of Ferguson's sight shaking his head.
