In chyron veritas.

The text mistakenly popped up on the news ticker at the bottom of the screen during a tennis update just after 0930 on Tuesday. Later in the morning, presenter Annita Mcveigh apologised to any Manchester United fans who may have been offended. She said the mistake had occurred as someone was learning how to operate the ticker and was "writing random things".
