“I would like to add that I feel relatively well, just a little more tired than usual and confident that I will recover as soon as possible following the medical diagnosis that I hope will allow me to overcome the infection from which I suffer and that is affecting so many people around the planet,” Banderas added.
“I will take advantage of this isolation to read, write, rest and continue making plans to begin to give meaning to my 60 years, to which I arrived full of desire and enthusiasm,” the actor continued. “A big hug to everyone.”
