Elon Musk says he was joking about buying English football club Manchester United Plc and isn’t in the market for any sports teams.

After earlier tweeting that he was purchasing the storied club in a thread joking about his political allegiances, the Tesla Inc. chief executive officer and world’s richest person walked back from the claim about four hours later, just after midnight New York time.

No, this is a long-running joke on Twitter. I’m not buying any sports teams.
