Celebrated Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman had to bow out of the media presentation for his upcoming series, 'Special Ops: Lioness', in Europe. The seasoned actor's health complications resulted in his decision to stay back in the United States, as he faced concerns of a contagious infection.
At 86, Freeman's decision came after he developed a fever, prompting doctors to speculate about a potential infectious disease. His representative sought to reassure the public and the actor's fans, asserting that there was no cause for worry.
Morgan Freeman's Health Update
In a conversation with MailOnline, Freeman's representative confirmed, "Morgan has a fever and his doctor felt he had a contagious infection, so he cancelled his trip. He is fine now”.
