Norwegian footballer Erling Haaland spent 500,000 euros in six hours at a restaurant in Mykonos, Greece.

On June 26, Haaland falsified the news reports terming them as fake news.

On June 26, Haaland falsified the news reports terming them as fake news. A claim has been making rounds on social media stating that Dortmund striker Erling Haaland spent 500,000 euros in six hours at a restaurant on Mykonos island and ended up leaving a 30,000 euros tip for the staff. The same was also tweeted by sports journalist Stefan Bienkowski on June 26, 2021.

The report, which first appeared in the Greek newspaper Sportime, claimed that Haaland, who was on holiday on the Greek island, drank four bottles of Cristal Vintage champagne at 70 euros each. The report did not mention the name of the restaurant. Several other media organizations later carried the information.

However, Haaland debunked the reports calling them "fake news." The footballer took to Twitter on June 26 and responded to Bienkowski's tweet, saying, "I think they forgot the minicourse."

Since the media report from which the claims originated has not mentioned the restaurant's details, we cannot authenticate their claim. Also, considering the claim has been falsified by the footballer, we mark it as false.
