Phone tapping case reveals Wayne Rooney password

An amusing revelation in Britain’s ongoing phone hacking case has emerged.

The notes of Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator who worked closely with the News of the World and who confessed to hacking phones on behalf of the now-defunct newspaper, have been revealed in court.

Among the many people whose phone Mulcaire is alleged to have tapped is Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. No prizes for guessing what forward’s password was. Yes, that’s right it was ‘model professional’.

No, not really, apparently, it was ‘Stella Artois’.
