It's been revealed that '60s movie star Jimmy Wang Yu, 77, had been in the hospital since 2016 after suffering a stroke. He was finally discharged yesterday (Feb 2).
Best known for playing the One-armed Swordsman in the 1967 movie of the same name, Wang Yu suffered his first stroke 10 years ago. In 2016, he had his second stroke in Bangkok where he fainted at the airport and had to be rushed to the hospital for two emergency brain surgeries. He returned to Taiwan by medical plane that same year and was hospitalised for the past five years.
His second daughter, Carol Wong, has been taking care of him all this time, while his eldest daughter, singer Linda Wong, lives in Hongkong and could not visit him due to the pandemic.
