Legendary French actor Alain Delon, 83, suffered a stroke a few weeks ago and is currently resting & # 39; in Switzerland, his son revealed yesterday.

Anthony Delon said the vital functions of his father were perfect and his condition stabilized according to doctors.

He received an honorary prize for the Palme d & # 39; Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival in May.

At the time, Cannes film bosses called the 83-year-old actor a & # 39; giant, a living legend and a global icon & # 39 ;.

& # 39; More than 80 films, countless masterpieces and superlatives bear witness to the artistic reach and international appeal of a man, & # 39; they said.

& # 39; He quickly shook the guise of the boisterous young hero, focused on complex, ambivalent and tragic, fragile but rude characters and formed the role of police officers and cold-blooded animals. & # 39;

His son said that Delon was being operated on in a hospital in Paris, where he spent three weeks in intensive care.

& # 39; The whole family took turns at his bedside, my brother, sister and mother Nathalie, & # 39; Anthony Delon said.

He added that his father & # 39; went back to Switzerland and quietly rested in a clinic & # 39 ;.

& # 39; My sister who now lives in Switzerland is following his recovery closely and keeping us informed of his daily progress & # 39 ;, said his son.

In recent weeks, several celebrity magazines had claimed that the actor had had a stroke.

In mid-June, Alain Delon's professional team said the actor had been admitted to a hospital in Paris due to dizziness and mild headache.

& # 39; Symptoms probably due to a heart rhythm disorder that the actor suffered, & # 39; said the same source.

This year, Delon received an honorary prize for the Palme d & # 39; Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival (he was shown there in May)

The actor, who was born in France in 1935, started Swiss citizenship in 1999.

He has had a series of high-profile relationships, initially with Romy Schneider, his co-star in the 1958 film Christine.

In 1964 he married his wife Nathalie, the mother of Anthony Delon, but they divorced in 1969.

He then had a 15-year relationship with actress Mireille Darc, who appeared on French screens in the 1960s and 1970s.

He has two younger children, Anouchka and Alain-Fabien, with the Dutch model Rosalie van Breemen.
