The seller called the product ‘David Attenborough CBD Oil’ and claimed the environmentalist said he “wouldn’t be here” today without using it.

However, his spokesperson told Mirror Online: “These are not genuine endorsements and Sir David has had no involvement whatsoever with these products.

“The companies do not have permission to use Sir David’s name or image.

In March 2004, City’s David Oldfield, then a player-coach up the road at Oxford United, had been put in caretaker charge following the departure of the manager. His first game was against Mansfield Town, managed by his fellow Manchester City alumnus Keith Curle, these days at Northampton. Not that it was a meeting to last long in the memory.

“A storm had hit the country and the wind was blowing so badly, we got called in to the referee’s room at half-time and were told he was abandoning the game,” Oldfield recalls. “Never happened to me before or since.”

Thus was his time in charge at Oxford United limited to 45 minutes:

Most real estate developers have hit pause. Why Terra’s David Martin is forging ahead

Most college students use coffee to power through all-night cram sessions.

As a University of Florida undergrad, David Martin used coffee in a different way — to launch his business career.

Starbucks had started sprouting up around the country in 1995, but none had yet reached Gainesville. So Martin signed onto his AOL account and went online to find out why so many were buzzing about the company.
