A 52-year-old IT consultant from India has been deluged with messages on Twitter congratulating him for the key role he played in guiding Manchester United to the Premier League title.
But this is not some unsung back-room hero whose logarithms have informed Alex Ferguson's tactical decisions, or a number-cruncher who texts the coaches on the bench to tell them when it's the perfect scientific moment to make a substitution.
Nope. It's just a bloke who happens to have the initials RVP.
Ravi Visvesvaraya Prasad - you can see why he shortens his handle to RVP - has been the recipient of thousands of messages, due simply to the fact that his Twitter handle is @rvp.
Messages such as "Great scenes as @RVP celebrates winning his first title at United… Well done mate", "Congratulations Man United!!! Well done @rvp!!!" and "Cant wait to see u lifting the PL title at Old Trafford on 12th May @rvp" began flooding in, bringing the mild mannered boffin 5,000 new followers.
Ravi has sent out message after message telling fans that he's not the real thing, but fans saw it as a red rag to a bull, sending new messages such as, "He consults when he wants, He consults when he wants, Ravi Visvesvara Prasad, he consults when he wants, dont you @rvp ?"
RVP - the Indian one, not the Dutch one - has spent days blocking and deleting people who have begun to follow him on the social networking site, despite telling the BBC that he is a big fan of the player.
"Most of the messages or mentions are nice. But it’s a real nuisance for me," he said.
"My email account is clogged too – I think people have been trying to hack into my Twitter account as I keep getting messages referring to a forgotten password."
It looks like the saga will keep on going, however: even his former friends have started getting in on the act, with several adding the hashtag "HeTweetsWhatHeWants" at messages directed towards their pal.
