Source Notes

A forum user pointed to the blog of Maika Aránega, who quotes the birth certificate:

Sy Scholfield notes that in the book, "Pep Guardiola: So geht's anders!" by Miguel Angel Violán (Meyer & Meyer Verlag, 2013), the author states on pages 25-26 that he was told by Guardiola's mother that Pep was born "mittags" (at noon).
