Ghanaian football legend Abedi Pele has denied rumours on social media and some news websites that he has died.
The reports claim the three-time winner of the African Footballer of the Year award died in Marseille, France.
Pele, however, says he has not been sick. He told Citi FM that the report was a hoax.
Meanwhile, one of his sons, West Ham United player Andre Ayew, is quoted by the GNA as telling Ghanasoccernet that: “My dad is alive and very well. He has not suffered from any sickness or illness and has not received any treatment in France. The reports are complete lies and a hoax.”
