Just last month, reports claimed that veteran Hongkong actor Damian Lau had suffered a stroke, after a journo spotted him walking with a crutch and looking weaker than usual. The 70-year-old also needed help from an assistant, and it was said that the fingers on his right hand were bent in an unnatural way.
However, his management denied that he had a stroke, claiming that Damian had a fall and was recovering.
Over the weekend, Hongkong actress Michelle Yim wrote on Weibo that she had gone hiking with Damian. “It’s the last day of Chinese New Year, and I’m celebrating it with Damian. We went hiking, exchanged red packets and had some morning tea. Here's wishing everyone good health!” she wrote.
She also posted a photo she took with Damian. In the pic, the actor was all smiles and appeared to be in better health.
However, some netizens believe that the Luk Siu-fung star has yet to fully recover from his reported stroke. According to them, they think that Damian had deliberately placed his right hand in his pocket so as to hide his bent fingers.
