Elon Musk tweets he is buying Manchester United while joking on politics.

On Wednesday, Elon Musk, the world’s richest person, tweeted that he was joking when he said that he was going to buy English soccer club Manchester United Plc.

“No, this is a long-running joke on Twitter. I’m not buying any sports teams,” Musk said, when asked by a user if he was serious about buying the club.

About four hours earlier, Musk had tweeted: “I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome,” without offering any details. Some Manchester United fans, disgruntled by their club’s declining fortunes of late, had previously urged Musk on Twitter to consider buying the club.
