BBC: Pavarotti faked final performance

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Pavarotti faked final performance: "Tenor Luciano Pavarotti was miming during his last performance at the winter Olympics in Turin in 2006.

Pavarotti, who died in September, was already suffering pain months before being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
