Was that line always there at the end?

Many people remember the ending of the famous Queen song "We are the champions" as "...of the world".

Video of Queen singing this line live does exist, but today you'll not find it on any of their records, and it apparently never was. It's not that the line isn't in the song at all, because that's how a few renditions of the chorus ends during it.

The controversy is the fact it seems to stop abruptly where it would naturally appear again, right at the end of the song.

Hardcore Queen fans are claiming it never was there at the end, but those saying it is a Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect are saying they are just experiencing a timeline in which that was the case, as would be the answer if you spoke to the original studio engineers.
