The picture showed a visibly aged Jet Li at a Tibetan temple.

While representatives of Lee rubbished reports that he was suffering from something life-threatening, fans were still worried about the martial arts icon.

The 56-year-old Li had revealed in 2013 that he had been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid.

A picture Li took with a fan quickly went viral on Weibo, with many praising Li's youthful looks and demeanour.

Here he is.

Here he is next to Stephen Curry recently.
