Jet Li looks almost unrecognisable in an image taken earlier this month.
The 55-year-old martial arts star was snapped by a fan while in Tibet, appearing to look rather frail and unsteady on his feet.
In the picture, Jet is smiling but it sparked concern amongst fans who know him best for his action roles and full head of hair.
The fan captioned the shot: “So, apparently, Jet Li is suffering from hyperthyroidism and spinal problems and this is him now.”
His manager Steven Chasman has responded to concerns over the image, revealing it is in fact just a bad picture.
He told The Washington Post: “He has hyperthyroidism that he’s been dealing with for almost 10 years. It’s nothing life-threatening and he’s dealing with it. He’s all well and good.”
