Twice in one day - or is this the same root story?

You'd think he would get a date like that right. Unless, of course, he was abducted twice and the aliens played with his memories.

Is there any chance of getting a link/scan of the original article? It sounds like it's too fascinating to pass up.

I want to know, who contacted the Grauniad pointing out the error or demanding a correction.

The aliens, of course - I doubt that Mr Ilyumzhinov reads it!
