FOOTBALL fans feel they have been lied to after discovering Joe Hart's real name.
The Manchester City legend has gone by his middle name throughout his entire career.
The goalkeeper has two middle names, Joe and John, and was once listed as "John Hart" on a Torino teamsheet for a match against Atalanta.
But Hart, 35, is actually named after his father Charles, according to Wikipedia.

One supporter wrote: "So I've just found out Joe Hart's real name is Charles. I'm very much contemplating how much else of my life is a lie."

Another added: "How have I just found out Joe Hart's real name is Charles Hart 😳."
And a third said: "Every so often I remember that Joe Hart's real name is Charles."
Another commented: "Still doesn’t feel right that Joe Hart’s real name is Charles."
Hart is not the only player who goes by his middle name, and some fans were also taken aback when they learned Harry Maguire's first name is actually Jacob.
