Nickname confusion over Nottingham Forest's Wes Morgan
A man from the US has become a cult figure for Nottingham Forest fans because he shares a player's nickname.
Internet developer Wes Hall and defender Wes Morgan are both known as Big Wes.
Mr Hall, who uses @BigWes on Twitter, had messages congratulating him on his 400th appearance for the club.
Despite the error, the Atlanta man said his followers have tripled and is set to receive a replica shirt from the fans.
Mr Hall said he thanked fans "for the love" but explained they had got him mixed up with someone else.
"We had a couple of exchanges and I asked to be an honorary Forest fan," he told the BBC.
"This story is all about how wonderful these fans are, I'm just a by-product of the whole thing.
"I was just lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time."
A Nottingham Forest spokesman said: "We were fascinated to hear Big Wes' story.
"It's great to know we've gained a new follower in Atlanta and look forward to one day welcoming him to The City Ground."
Mr Hall said he hoped to get to see a Forest game at the City Ground in the near future.
