The global statement allows specifying a list of identifiers, as correctly reported in the "Simple statements" chapter: https://docs.python.org/3/reference/simple_stmts.html#the-global-statement.

Inconsistently, however, the "Execution model" chapter describes the global statement as if it only allowed one single name.

This can be addressed by pluralizing the word "name" in the appropriate places in the "Execution model" chapter.
