The UEFA Champions League intro music has become legendary with football fans since its introduction 20 years ago.
And now, it's been revealed that the song is jarringly similar to George Frideric Handel's "Zadok the Priest," the song played during the coronation of a monarch ever since the coronation King George II of Britain in 1727.
Some journalists on Twitter highlighted this interesting tidbit of information.
Ben Rumbsby, a Sports Investigations Reporter for the Daily Telegraph, noted that the Champions League anthem wouldn't be played at home games by British teams this week following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 96.
"There will be no Champions League anthem played during matches played at home by British teams this week. Interestingly, it's the same song played during a coronation," he captioned his tweet.
Anthony Hurrey, a writer and editor for The Athletic UK, quote-tweeted Rumbsby's initial tweet, confirming the point.
He also shared a quote from British composer Tony Britten, the man behind the league's anthem.
"There's a rising string phase which I pinched from Handel, and then I wrote my own tune. It has a kind of Handelian feel to it, but I like to think it's not a total rip-off,'" Britton said.
