A recent photo of Jet Li was widely shared on social media and sparked concern among fans who felt the legendary actor looked unrecognisable as he continues to battle health problems.
The martial arts legend revealed in 2013 he was suffering from a slew of health issues, including hyperthyroidism, spinal problems and a heart condition. He was first diagnosed with an overactive thyroid in 2010 and took medication to control it.
Li’s manager, Steven Chasman has reacted to the photo of Li saying “was just a bad photo of someone who is 55 years old”.
“He has hyperthyroidism that he’s been dealing with for almost 10 years. It’s nothing life-threatening and he’s dealing with it.”
