Stirling Moss’s health is now in “stable” condition after the Englishman suffered a severe chest infection late last year.
According to a statement released on Moss’ website, the 87-year-old was admitted to a hospital in Singapore on December 22, 2016. Although the name of the hospital was not disclosed, it has been described as “second to none” in terms of both staff and facilities.
After spending over 20 days in the hospital, Moss is now in stable condition and will continue to undergo recovery.
“Because of the severity of the infection it resulted in some complications and his recovery has not been as speedy as expected or wished,’’ the statement read.
“However, his condition continues to improve and his doctors now consider him to be stable.”
“In himself, Sir Stirling is in good spirits and only upset about having missed his Christmas cruise with friends.”
After being discharged, Moss and his wife plan to spend some time in Singapore before returning home.
The Englishman is widely regarded as the greatest driver never to win a title. He won 16 races in a career spanning 66 races and 11 years.
