“We confirm that the information from an article that was uploaded to a website and has been quoted by the Daily Mail and a number of other media, and has become a reference for Lewandowski, is a hoax,” Huawei said.

The Daily Mail, in a correction to its news, said reports of a Chinese news portal suggesting Huawei would use their training center to train 50,000 technical experts in Russia have been removed.

Previously, Lewandowski’s agent confirmed the termination of the contract relationship with Huawei.

“We have taken the decision to terminate the marketing partnership between Robert Lewandowski and Huawei,” said Lewandowski’s agent, Tomasz Zawislak. “Therefore, all forms of promotion with Huawei have been terminated,” he continued.

Lewandowski has expressed his support for Ukrainians after the Russian invasion by wearing a bracelet in the color of the Ukrainian flag.

“The world must not accept what is happening there. I hope the whole world supports Ukraine,” said Lewandowski. (AFP/OL-1)
