During his testimonial year for Warwickshire, both Ashley Giles and the county had ordered coffee mugs and other memorabilia with the words KING OF SPIN to be printed on them. The printing agency, unfortunately, lacked cricket knowledge or perhaps there was a printing error. The caption came out as KING OF SPAIN.

Poor Giles earned the obvious (and somewhat cruel) nickname of King of Spain, and became a unanimous target for jokes and taunts!
