Sir Stir­ling Moss has been re­leased from a Sin­ga­pore hos­pi­tal af­ter spend­ing 134 days there re­ceiv­ing treat­ment for a chest in­fec­tion.

The 87-year-old is now back home af­ter be­ing ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal on 22 De­cem­ber last year.

A spokesper­son for the Moss fam­ily says: ‘We are de­lighted to be able to say that Sir Stir­ling is now at home. He is thrilled to be back where he be­longs.

‘He still has a sub­stan­tial amount of re­cov­ery to un­der­take, but says that he has de­ter­mi­na­tion and a great pit crew. He and Lady Moss are enor­mously grate­ful to the med­i­cal staff, both here and abroad, who worked so tire­lessly to make all this pos­si­ble.

‘ They also want to thank, from the bot­tom of their hearts, all the fam­ily, friends and fans for their love and sup­port. It has been over­whelm­ing and given them a lot of strength, smiles and hope.’

Floods of well-wish­ers have con­tacted Sir Stir­ling via his web­site. One fam­ily from Glouces­ter­shire wrote: ‘Wish­ing you a speedy re­cov­ery at home and think­ing of you and your fam­ily at this stress­ful time. Keep fight­ing and re­turn to good health. We all need the world’s great­est racer. Take good care.’

Moss cel­e­brated the 60th an­niver­sary of his maiden For­mula 1 win with this Maserati 250F at The His­toric Grand Prix of Monaco last year.
