Alan Tam has become the latest celeb to join the fitness craze, picking up running about a month ago.
The 69-year-old star has been posting sweaty post-workout snaps on his Weibo (‘cos, you know, he deleted everything else), and his Aug 13 update was met with great concern by netizens. Clad in a pink shirt which was drenched in sweat, Alan was not a picture of vigour, his cheeks looking a lot hollower than usual.
Overreacting netizens immediately assumed the worst, even jumping to conclusions that he was “suffering from a terminal illness” that caused him to lose that much weight in a short span. “Please go see a doctor,” one implored. Another intoned, “Whatever it is, please know that we’re all supporting you”, adding curiously, “If you don’t have enough [money] for treatment, let us know!”
