According to stories in The Independent, The Times and The Herald, Joice Maduaka has a full-time job with the press team at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
Fresh from a season's best and fourth spot in the women's 100 metres, Maduaka anchored the British 100m relay ladies to a surprise second spot with a great finish.
Diary thought it prudent to get a quote from Maduaka's pleased-as-punch bosses at the FCO, also cited by a number of athletics publications as her place of work.
'I don't think she works here. We deal with other countries,' a slightly bemused FCO press officer tells us. 'Perhaps you should call HR.' Over to HR: 'There's no record, I'll call you back.' We're still waiting.
Either the press have got this one wrong or Maduaka, whom Diary could not reach, has done a runner.
