Lavigne, 32, who found fame in 2002 with the hit single “Complicated,” has been off the celebrity scene for a number of years because of Lyme disease which she has said left her bedridden.

I don’t choose the games I play for my country- Victor Moses

Chelsea star Victor Moses has dismissed suggestions he picks and chooses the games he plays for Nigeria, insisting he always wants to be fit before appearing for his country.

He has since won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations for Nigeria and featured at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He’s the fastest man in the world who hung up his spikes last month, but Usain Bolt has no plans to come out of retirement unless it’s guaranteed to be as big as an ordeal as Floyd Mayweather’s recent comeback to defend his title against Conor McGregor.
