Ricky Martin has shot down reports of his death with an Instagram.com post from "heaven".

Martin's demise became a hot topic on the Internet over the weekend, but like so many other recent celebrity death reports, it turned out to be a hoax.

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer addressed the rumours on Monday with a playful post.

He uploaded a photograph of the view from his oceanside retreat and added the caption, "Hello from #heaven."

He also posted a shot of himself admiring a Puerto Rican sunset, captioning that shot "#Sunset in #heaven".
