In the summer of 2019, Alain Delon, sacred monster of French cinema, was the victim of a stroke as well as a cerebral hemorrhage, pushing him to be hospitalized at the Salpêtrière hospital and then in a Swiss clinic. Information revealed by his son Anthony Delon in a statement sent to AFP.

“My father had a cardiovascular accident and a slight cerebral hemorrhage,” he said and added: “He was operated on at Pitié Salpêtrière, where he remained in intensive care for three weeks. My brother, my sister and my mother Nathalie took over at his bedside. His vital functions being perfect and his condition stabilized, according to the doctors, he returned to Switzerland and is resting peacefully in a clinic. My sister, who now resides in Switzerland, follows his recovery closely and keeps us informed of his daily progress”, we learned.

The ex-fiancé of Romy Schneider had been admitted to the American hospital in Neuilly “for dizziness and apparently minor headaches”. At the end of the summer of 2019, it was his daughter Anouchka Delon who finally spoke to reassure his fans about his state of health.

“Our father is better, even more than better. Do not be fooled by the imbecilities relayed by the press. His days are positive, warlike, and without incident”, she wrote on her Instagram account and to continue: “He is recovering entirely, and has no sequelae. He is extremely touched by your messages and your loyalty. He will not fail to thank you in due time, when he has decided, as he knows how to do so well.

Alain Delon, 87, seems to have gradually recovered from his stroke, as evidenced by the recent interview with his son Alain-Fabien Delon at Le Parisien, April 18, 2023. “I was at his house for Easter, he is in good shape, happy, he eats his chocolate…”, he explained.
