The network quickly deleted the tweet and proceded with business as usual, not mentioning the incident or issuing any statement.
“We announce the sad news that Lionel Messi died of cardiopulmonary arrest during a workout”, the message posted by Fox Sports read.
However, these reports were obviously dubious, as Messi was with his teammates, celebrating their four titles won this season.
