Actor Jet Li is Sick, Looks Almost Unrecognisable In new Photo

On Saturday, 19 May, a recent photo of Chinese actor and martial artist Jet Li Lianjie looking almost unrecognisable was widely circulated online.
The photo published on South China Morning Post shows the actor looking frail and needing assistance during a recent visit to a Tibetan temple.
Li made his mark in the Chinese acting scene in classics such as 'Once Upon A Time In China' and 'Fist of Legend.'
He has since made a name for himself in Hollywood through his roles in action films such as 'Lethal Weapon 4' and 'Expendables 2.'
Last year, Li revealed that he was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid in 2010.
In addition to the overactive thyroid condition, Li revealed that he was also suffering from leg and spinal problems that have made him unable to stand for long periods of time.
The martial artist also said that in 2013, he was warned by his doctors that he "would end up in a wheelchair" if he continued to physically exert himself in action films.
Jet Li's fans took to social media to express their shock at his physical appearance and concern for his well-being.
