Nothing crowds your Facebook and Twitter feeds more than the results of a huge sporting grand final.
Take last night’s epic Australian Open men’s final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. The amount of news flooding every website and social media page about the result can be likened to shuffling onto a crowded train at peak hour and trying to avoid making physical contact with another human. You can’t possibly do anything to avoid it.
But there is one ‘conspiracy’ we’ve spotted online that simply cannot be ignored.
Apparently, there was a mysterious ‘splatter’ that appeared on court during the fifth set of last night’s battle and…well, people are very, very suspicious.
Just before serving, Nadal called over a ball boy to clean up a brown-reddish mess that had appeared at his feet.
Twitter, of course, offered up a number of explanations for the puddle.
