Who Stole The FA Cup?

Headline and article in the Sunday Pictorial newspaper purporting to be a confession by 83 year-old Harry Burge to the theft 63 years earlier of the FA Cup from a sporting goods premises in Birmingham, dated 23 February 1958. It is widely believed that this is "fake news" and that Burge's motivation for his confession was a fee from the newspaper. The trophy was never recovered and a replacement was made.
