Soccer agent Mino Raiola has expressed his displeasure at the false news report that he has died.

Raiola was in a hospital in Milan on Thursday when he was pronounced dead in Italy.

The news went viral and Real Madrid tweeted their condolences to Raiola's family.

Real's tweet was quickly deleted after Riola himself spoke on social media.

Dr Alberto Jangrilo, who is treating Riola, said he was upset by the rumors.
