England flanker James Haskell has reassured fans he is alive after rumours surfaced on the internet that he had died of a steroid overdose.

Other claims to have emerged stated that Haskell had been selling drugs and had quit the sport, but the Wasps back row posted a video on YouTube in which he described the fake stories as “click-bait”. “You may have seen there are quite a lot of fake news stories operating on Facebook, that I have died of a steroid overdose, which is not true, that I have died of a drug overdose, which is not true, and that my career is over because I have been trying to sell drugs. This is absolute rubbish,” he said.
