Apparently he's not dead but in hospital

Bad reporting stating he'd died

Wonder why people make things up on Twitter. Good news in any case. 

Bad reporting from the reporter that put it out in South Wales 

It is good news but talk sport saying he's in a bad way fighting for his life

Keep fighting Peter best wishes to you.

Chopra has since deleted his tweet

Badly informed. 

Can’t criticise that.
