A fan poses with a man who he claims to be Jet Li.

22 May – A recent viral photo of martial arts actor Jet Li sparked a heated discussion among fans regarding the actor's well-being.

As reported on Mingpao, recently a netizen shared a picture of a white-haired hunchbacked old man, which he claimed to be the "Once Upon A Time in China" actor himself.

The photo shocked many, who agreed that the 55-year-old actor looked like a 70-year-old.

Sources alleged that the photo was taken when Jet was in Tibet earlier.

However, the actor recently shared his own series of photos from a recent trip to the Disaster Preparedness Learning Centre in Chengdu, in which he seemed as healthy and in good spirit as always, confusing fans even more.

On the other hand, actor Law Kar Ying, who worked with Jet in "The Sorcerer and the White Snake" recently took to Weibo to express his well-wishes for the actor, saying, "Bless Jet Li for his physical and mental well-being. He is in a peaceful state of mind and happy."
