Jackson also remembered in Exeter
As the pop world mourns the untimely passing of Michael Jackson, we are reminded that the ‘world’s greatest showman’ was once an honorary director of English lower league soccer side Exeter City.
Jackson took up the role for a short time in 2002 on the recommendation of his friend, the TV psychic Yuri Geller.
So even the soccer blogosphere is full of tributes to Jackson, a mark of a truly global megastar.
