Sometimes there is one question everyone wants to know the answer to.
Yesterday it was: what did Materazzi say to Zidane to make him attack him in such spectacular style?
Neither player was speaking about it, so a more cunning approach was required. We needed a lip reader who could speak Italian - Zidane has played in the country and understands the language.
We asked our team in Rome to come up with the goods. It was a long shot - but it paid off. We found a deaf man who translated what Materazzi said into sign language, and someone who could translate the sign language into English.
I will leave to your imagination what the sign language for "go **** yourself" was... The signs for "I hope your family all die ugly deaths" were a little easier to show.
The result was a genuine scoop - and a lot more accurate than some of the claims in today's papers.
