Federica Pellegrini changes her telephone number.
What she said:
“Good. I have done it..thank-you for your messages of encouragement and congratulations. But obviously I have now changed my number.”
Italian swimmer and former Olympic champion Federica Pellegrini was forced to change her telephone number when she inadvertently revealed her contact details while publishing the results of a random doping test on social networking site Twitter.
Pellegrini was immediately deluged with tweets requesting her to hide her number while others wished to add her to their WhatsApp list of contacts.
After a few hours, Pellegrini responded as above.
What she really meant:
“Changing phone numbers was really easy, folks. The phone company is obviously first on my list of new contacts.”
What she definitely didn’t:
“What’s up with WhatsApp? What’s that, really?”
