New Delhi: On October 19, a news website NetLiveMedia reported that the tennis player Roger Federer was in a critical condition after a serious car accident in Madrid, Spain. The website said that the tennis player was returning from a party with friends in the early hours of the morning when he was involved in a terrible collision in Spain’s capital of Madrid.

The news shook the world and created a panic among the Roger fans. However, it was later clarified that the news was a hoax.

“Roger Federer has not been injured in a car accident. Article is fake. Photo is from 2014 car crash in Singapore.” wrote a sportsman on Twitter.

Many other ‘verified’ accounts of Twitter shared the news of Roger Federer’s alleged accident, suggesting that the news was fake.

“It’s NOT true! Roger was on twitter 4 h ago 🙂 Bless him!” wrote another Twitter user.

The report of Federer’s accident came when the Tennis star was physically present at Rafael Nadal’s academy.

Slamming the news website, a Twitter user wrote, “The bogus report comes from a clickbait fake-news website called “NetLiveMedia”. Nothing published on this site should be taken seriously.”
