Shocking: Fans worry over Jet Li’s health (Photos)

A photo allegedly of martial artist, Jet Li, has alarmed fans and raised questions about the 55-year-old action star’s health.

After the photo, which was taken at a temple in Tibet went viral on Saturday, the South China Morning Post reported that fans were “praying for his health”

Long known for his youthful looks and acrobatic moves, in recent years Li has battled hyperthyroidism, a condition that can cause fatigue and weight loss and that has previously ignited rumors of Li’s declining health.

While some of his fans were praying for him, others have speculated that the man they believe is Li looks older because of bad lighting or the angle.

Headlines have declared Li “unrecognizable,” pondering “is this the same Jet Li we all know.”

On Monday Li’s manager, Steven Chasman, said that it 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,” Chasman told the Washington Post, adding that he has spoken with Li’s assistant.

Diagnosed with an overactive thyroid in 2010, Li has previously spoken about his condition, saying in 2013 that he was uncertain if he could continue working but was determined to, according to the Associated Press.  

“I’m in pain, but I’m not suffering. I’m happy,” he said, adding that he took medication.
