David Luiz has denied suggestions that he is a virgin.

Earlier this week it was inferred that the Paris St Germain defender had suggested he was celibate in a message he posted on his Instagram account.

However, the former Chelsea player insists he was not reflecting a view of no-sex-before-marriage.

"My religion, my baptism, I'm very happy," he told BBC's Football Focus.

"People are saying things everywhere about whether I'm a virgin or not. I'm not a virgin."

He added: "Some people in the press don't respect people in life. I can put my head on my pillow and sleep great because I respect everyone."

The Brazil international, who is due to marry his girlfriend Sara Madeira, was baptised in the indoor swimming pool of his PSG team-mate Maxwell last week.

Alongside an image from the ceremony, the 28-year-old posted a verse from the bible on Instagram.

It read: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)"

He added: "How wonderful to live with you Lord, thank You for loving me so much and take care of me! My life is yours, and I am your servant! What 're always in the center of all my decisions! I love my God! amen"
