Legendary Springbok winger Brian Habana has produced a video on his Twitter to explain he is not dead.
The bizarre rumour sprouted on website Houston Chronicle TV which claimed the Toulon wing had been shot dead in Paris.

The article claimed: “the 33-year-old rugby star had been wounded in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene” after detailing a late night murder scene with Habana apparently a tragic victim.
But Habana, a World Cup winner with South Africa back in 2007 and one of the stars of that tournament, quickly took to Twitter to reassure fans that he is, in fact, alive and kicking.
