Andrew Flintoff #conspiracy dailymail.co.uk
Former England cricket star Andrew Flintoff has admitted he is convinced the world is flat- or at least 'bulbous, like a turnip'.
'Freddie', 39, admitted he has become obsessed with a podcast called The Flat Earthers.
The show is a genuine conspiracy theory claiming the earth being round was a lie peddled by Disney - despite the assertion of a spherical planet having been around since the Ancient Greek era, and having been the popular belief since Christohper Columbus' famed voyage in 1492.
Speaking on his own podcast, for BBC 5 Live with former Wales footballer Robbie Savage, Flintoff ignored all satellite photos of Earth to suggest there was 'evidence to suggest the world wasn't round'.
And the pair are even deliberating a trip to next year's The Flat Earth International Conference in America.
He said: 'If you’re in a helicopter and you hover why does the Earth not come to you if it’s round?
'Why, if we’re hurtling through space, why would water stay still? Why is it not wobbling? Also if you fire a laser about 16 miles, if the world was curved, you shouldn’t be able to see it but you can.'
He added: 'The middle is the North Pole, around the outside is the South Pole which is like a big wall of ice. This is why all governments now have bases on the South Pole.'
