Los Angeles: Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone found himself as a victim of a death hoax, but dismissed the rumour with a fun photograph.

The Rocky star shared an image on Instagram holding up his fists with professional boxer Sergey Kovalev on Saturday, reports mirror.co.uk.

Without referencing the hoax that quickly spread across social media, Sylvester brushed it off with a cheeky smile and boxing pose, proving he's as fit as ever.

Fans of the Rocky and Rambo action movie legend were thrown into a state of shock this weekend as a rumour circulated on social media and appeared to confirm his death.

However, Stallone, who has ignored the prank, has still been active on his own social media accounts.
