“As a police officer, I am not assigned a gun while not on duty. At the moment, I am only armed with my spikes and training shoes. I do not take alcohol. I am an Olympic champion and I do at all times live to the spirit of Olympic movement of being non-alcoholic."
Says he was just looking for some grub after watching a Premiere League match with his training mates, hadn't been drinking and doesn't even have a gun.

but we thought there should be another one with this title for the sake of his name.
