Rafael Nadal announces the death of Nelson Mandela

Fresh from his French Open triumph, Rafael Nadal this morning scoops the world with this tweet. And hey, it may disappear soon so here's the screenshot:

Is there no end to the man's talents?

(Tweet translation: "Today we have lost one of the most important and relevant people in our world. Rest in peace Nelson Mandela").

UPDATE: It gets better, as apparently Chile's Minister of Culture started false rumours of Mandela's death.

UPDATE 2: Sure enough, that Rafa tweet has been pulled. I kinda thought at the time that a screenshot wasn't a bad idea...
