Martial Arts Legend Gordon Liu Moves Into Nursing Home After Suffering From Stroke
In September last year, Twitch reported that Gordon Liu, Hong Kong martial arts legend and star of THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN, KILL BILL 1 & 2 plus numerous other films, was admitted into hospital following a head injury. At the time, there were a lot of speculations surrounding the cause and nature of Liu's injury.
As it turned out, Liu had a major stroke that left him completely paralysed on the right side of his body. He has been receiving rehabilitation since the stroke and has recently moved into a nursing home. He has refused to see anyone from the entertainment industry, except for Eric Tsang and Leung Ka Yan who visited him recently as representatives of the Hong Kong Performing Artistes Guild.
Tsang told the press following the visit that Liu has ongoing weakness in the right side of his body, and the Guild is helping to cover the cost of his medical treatment and accommodation. Gordon Liu has asked Tsang to pass on the message that he will actively work towards improvement and for people not to worry about him.
We are saddened by the news and wish Mr Liu a full and speedy recovery.
