As for proof, I don't have any, just word of people in the know, and given I doubt you can provide proof to the contrary, it's yo...

Kaiser

Listened to an interview of the two makers of this film about the Brazilian known as Kaiser who had a 26 year career that he conned without ever playing a game! Sounds like a fascinating story that hey admitted would be difficult to make up.
