Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan sparked rumours about his declining health after he secretly made a late night visit to the hospital on Tuesday night.

Jackie, who is turning 60 on April 7, will be holding a Peace & Love & Friendship concert in Beijing one day before his birthday to celebrate with his fans and friends in the entertainment industry.

With his sudden admission to the hospital, it seemed as if the martial artist had problems with his health, but he revealed that he was only there for a body checkup.

Jackie said: “I’m almost 60 and my friends are suggesting for me to go for a checkup, a 24-hour stay is just so I can go through the full body checkup procedure.”

Although Jackie has always been negligent with health checkups, he wanted to set his family’s hearts at ease after hearing about many of his industry friends discovering their ailments too late due to inattention. The checkup was also strongly requested by his actor son Jaycee Chan.

Jackie expressed, “I haven’t had a checkup for more than 8 years, and he (Jaycee) hopes that I can live past 100 years!”
