Fervent Manchester United fan and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has issued a decree ordering state television to broadcast Premier League football.
It is believed English football matches, featuring star-studded teams such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool will soon be broadcast across the nation following his decision.
The young leader is a long-time supporter of Manchester United and striker Wayne Rooney.
And it is his passion for the Red Devils and English top flight football that reportedly paved the way for football to be included in the country's viewing schedule shake-up.
However, it will also be illegal. Football clubs sell their video rights to broadcasters in deals that provide huge revenue and this is one way the league remains exceptionally lucrative.
A Premier League spokesman told the Daily Star: 'Nobody has the rights to broadcast Premier League football in North Korea so if this is happening then it is copyright theft, plain and simple.'
