How to install sshfs on CentOS 7?

sshfs is a nice tool. But it seems there is no support to it in a newly installed CentOS 7 Linux system:

Not installed by default:

# sshfs
-bash: sshfs: command not found

Seems not available from the repositories

# yum install sshfs -y
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repodata is over 2 weeks old. Install yum-cron? Or run: yum makecache fast
