Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said he did not have cancer, following a biopsy last week at a private hospital that proved negative for the disease.

"I'm still not cancerous," Duterte told a televised briefing at the presidential palace. "So do not be afraid to go near me, I will not contaminate you."
