ANDREW FLINTOFF has revealed he believes Earth is NOT round and is instead “turnip shaped” in a bizarre conspiracy theory.
The England cricket legend, 42, once revealed he was hooked on a podcast called The Flat Earthers.
In 2017, Flintoff revealed he believes the Earth is not perfectly spherical – but has now taken it a step further by calling it turnip-shaped.
When asked about his Flat Earth comments, “Freddie” – speaking to Laura Woods on talkSPORT – revealed: “It’s more like a flat turnip…
“I’m not saying it’s like a pancake, I’ve never said that.
“I’m saying it’s slightly round, but not your perfect sphere.
“People think I’m daft, but if you think about it, there’s this thing called gravity that we’re sticking to the world in…
“If you think about that in the cold light of day, it’s bonkers isn’t it? It is bonkers.
“Imagine being in Australia, you’re upside down… all the blood would rush to your head. It would be a nightmare.”
‘WHY ISN’T IT WOBBLING?’
It’s just the latest rant from the 2005 Ashes hero, after he admitted to his new obsession, the The Flat Earthers podcast.
The show involves conspiracy theorists who are adamant the world is flat – and who even accuse Disney of peddling lies about the planet’s shape.
At the time, Flintoff insisted there was “evidence to suggest the world isn’t round”.
He added: “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.”
But once again he admitted he does not believe Earth is totally flat, instead claiming it was “bulbous, like a turnip”.
He said: “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.”
Other sporting stars who believe the world is not round include NBA star Kyrie Irving and wrestler AJ Styles.
Flintoff recently revealed he and wife Rachael welcomed their fourth child to the world over Christmas.
