Goran fuming over CNN anthem gaffe
Goran Ivanisevic has complained after CNN mistakenly played the Romanian national anthem over pictures of him swearing allegiance to Croatia.

He was just one of the thousands who complained jamming phone lines about the mix up.

Goran said a CNN crew was in the country several days to do the short news item on his six-month compulsory military service and filmed numerous rehearsals with the right music.

But stunned Croatian and Romanian cable and satellite TV viewers watched as Goran marched in Croatian army uniform, accompanied by a dubbed over Romanian national anthem.

Goran told army pals: "I know the Americans have little idea about Europe but you would think they could at least pick the right anthem if they are going to try and add sound effects."

CNN has declined to comment on the mix-up, or criticism over the use of extra sound effects to add more authenticity to the program.

A spokesman said: "We are looking into the matter."
