FAKE NEWS: No, Lance Armstrong Isn't Dead

A fake facebook page was setup titled “BREAKING NEWS: Road racing cyclist Lance Armstrong has died’’

The facebook page claimed that the American former professional road racing cyclist Lance Armstrong, 45, passed away on Wednesday, according to his family.

Funnily enough the page started to trend on social media after a ‘R.I.P. Lance Armstrong’ facebook page attracted nearly one million likes.

Those who visited the page were given a believable account of the American athlete’s sudden demise, “At about 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday (May 10, 2017), our beloved athlete Lance Armstrong passed away. Lance Armstrong was born on September 18, 1971 in Plano. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”

Thousands of cycling fans and supporters posted their messages of condolences, expressing their sadness that the 45-year-old athlete was dead.

The news started to trend on Twitter too, after the death hoax was posted.

Lance Armstrong post this on Instagram after being made aware of his supposed demise.
