A photo of a man with a wheelbarrow has been shared thousands of times on social media in Africa and beyond, alongside a claim that it shows French-born football star N’Golo Kante in 2009 before he became famous. But this is false: contacted by AFP Fact Check, Kante’s former trainers confirmed the person in the image was not the Chelsea midfielder.
