Photos from a recent appearance in Tibet have reportedly sparked concerns across social media for the health of 55-year-old martial arts legend Jet Li.
Li revealed in 2013 that he was suffering from hyperthyroidism as well as a heart condition, while numerous on-set injuries have affected his health – notably leg and spinal injuries. He said at the time he could either continue making action films or spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
Reluctantly withdrawing from filmmaking, the devout Buddhist Li has in the last few years dedicated his time to his charity, The One Foundation, which mainly focuses on disaster relief and Chinese children’s welfare in China.
So, apparently, Jet Li is suffering from "hyperthyroidism and spinal problems" and this is him now: pic.twitter.com/Ss0W2EL96D
