STIRLING MOSS OUT OF HOSPITAL
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.
