The controversy surrounding Falcao’ s real age seems to be finished after his birth certificate was made public by Colombian newspaper El Tiempo .

The publication had access to the official document from the public notary where the new Monaco striker was registered in the northern coast city of Santa Marta.

The document states that Radamel Falcao García Zárate (his complete name) was born on February 10 th , 1986 in Santa Marta, dismissing the earlier report that said he was born two years earlier according to a record found in a school in the city of Bucaramanga.

On Tuesday, Falcao quickly dismissed the rumors about his age calling them “ridiculous” on his Twitter account.

The controversy about the Colombian star is not new. While he was playing at River Plate, a similar rumored surfaced when at the time he played the Under-20 World Cup.
