Reports of Dmitri Hvorostovsky's death (hopefully) unfounded

An erroneous headline reporting Hvorostovsky's death in the Russian media
Pravda, the official Russian newspaper, reported that Siberian baritone Dmitri Hvorosotovsky had died earlier today. The story was also reported by Echo of Russia radio, but was quickly denied by Mark Hildrew, executive director of the Askonas Holt arts management company who handles the singer. 

Social media was quickly flooded with condolences, only to be followed by messages of mass confusion. 

UPDATE: The Pravda website subsequently issued an apology for erroneously reported substantiated reports of the singer's death.
