IANS: Sylvester Stallone found himself as a victim of a 'sick' death hoax this weekend, but dismissed the rumours with a fun photo on Monday, media reports said.
Without referencing the hoax that quickly spread across social media, Sylvester brushed it off with a cheeky smile and boxing pose, proving he's as fit as ever, Mirror online reported.
"With the incredibly powerful unified light heavyweight champion, Sergey 'Krusher' Kovzalev '...Whatever he hits, he destroys" @sergeykovalev (sic)," the actor captioned the photo.
Fans of the Rocky and Rambo action movie legend were thrown into a state of shock this weekend as a cruel rumour circulated on social media which appeared to confirm his death.
A fake news story -- allegedly from US news site CNN - was being shared on Facebook, with fans clicking on the spam article, which then shares it on their page for their friends to see.
However, Stallone - who has ignored the prank -- has been active on his own social media accounts. On Friday, he shared a silly selfie with his daughter Sophia as they enjoyed a meal together, captioning it: "A wonderful quiet dinner together with my daughter.
Fans were confused when the hoax broke, with one writing: "Is Sylvester Stallone dead or it was just a hoax? #StalloneDead?
