It was all the buzz on Sunday that Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson had drowned in Canada.
The news was spreading so fast that Thompson had to take to her Instagram account and assure her fans that is ‘alive and well’
“Dear all: The “Breaking News” Report is fake news. Please do not share, retweet or pass along that story. I am alive and well and have never even been to Canada. Have a wonderful Sunday,” she wrote.
The is the second time Thompson has been forced to deny death rumours. Back in 2017 it was alleged that she was involved in a fatal car crash.
