Following his accident, it was discovered that he’d had two life-threatening aneurysms, which he underwent surgery for.

He recently spent five nights in intensive care, after he was rushed to hospital with a serious chest infection.

Last year, his wife Wilnelia opened up about his recovery, revealing she was hopeful he would return to the stage.

“I don’t expect him to go tap dancing but yes, he loves show business and I’m sure with a little bit of luck he should be back,” she said.

“Because he’s 88, usually a man of his age, they are already retired, but he’s been active only until just recently.”
