A South African man has been fined £70 for forging a sick note claiming he needed some quality time tending his unborn baby, Ananova reports.

According to Sapa news agency, 27-year-old Charles Sibindana "stole a medical certificate from a health centre used by his pregnant girlfriend", but failed to take into account he lacked the necessary womb to pull off the scam.

Magistrate Bruno Van Eeden in Vereeniging, near Johannesburg, slapped the master skiver with the aforementioned fine and told him "not to walk around faking sick letters from gynaecologists". ®
