Alain Delon, France’s best known movie actor, briefly underwent surgery for an irregular heartbeat in Paris yesterday, the 76-year-old told the daily Le Parisien.

“I was operated on two hours ago. It was planned. Two weeks ago I had dizzy spells and nausea,” he said, according to an account on the paper’s website, adding that he had been under anaesthetic for only 10 minutes.

“They tried to get my heart back in place,” he said.

“I had a scan. I was given the all clear on the neurological level, but they found an irregular heartbeat. It’s the kind of thing that happed to guys like me when there’s a build up of emotion. The shit I’ve been through.

“These days, I’ve been well served, what with my son and all,” he said, referring to a court case pending against his 17-year-old son accused of accidentally wounding a party guest in a firearm incident.
