HONG Kong singer Eason Chan will postpone his six shows in China this month after enduring a tennis mishap.

Sin Chew Daily reported that the 49-year-old suffered from heatstroke and collapsed on court while playing tennis at an outdoor venue in Hong Kong on Monday.

According to Chan’s management company, he was taken to a hospital where it was discovered that he had suffered a broken cheekbone and a deep cut on his jaw.

They said Chan had up to 30 dressings on his wounds. He will need time to recover from his injuries.

According to Lisa Kan, Chan’s manager, doctors have recommended that he take a minimum of three weeks rest. As a result, the shows in Chongqing have been rescheduled for next year.

“Chan is in stable condition. His injuries will not affect his ability to sing. He has been advised to refrain from talking excessively until he recovers.

“No one expected such an accident to happen. He isn’t too happy about not making it to Chongqing. He is sorry for disappointing his fans,” she said.

Chan had scheduled his “Fear and Dreams World Tour” concerts in Chongqing for June 14 to 16 and June 21 to 23.

> China Press reported that Malaysian singer Simon Mohan passed away yesterday.

The daily quoted the 64-year-old’s friend Stephen Seah as saying that Mohan breathed his last at the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) in Kuala Lumpur.

Mohan’s remains will be transported back to his hometown, Ipoh, and his wake will be held in Gunung Rapat.

Mohan is renowned in local music history for being the first Indian to record a Mandarin album in the 1990s.

In his prime, the Chinese-educated Mohan had a suave and dusky appearance, as well as crisp, clean vocals.

Seah said Mohan suffered a stroke in April but had gradually recovered.

“However, he expressed his unease to his son late on Monday night. His family sent him to UMMC but unfortunately, he left us on Tuesday morning,” he said.
