Last weekend, Richard Dawkins had a medical emergency.
Richard Dawkins has suffered a minor stroke, said the Sydney Opera House on Friday in a statement.
He is recuperating and is expected to “make a full or near full recovery”.
The well-known atheist was scheduled to deliver talks in Australia and New Zealand, which have been cancelled.
“On Saturday night Richard suffered a minor stroke, however he is expected in time to make a full or near full recovery. He is already at home recuperating,” said the announcement. “This unfortunately means Richard will be unable to make his planned Australian and New Zealand tour.”
“He is very disappointed that he is unable to do so but looks forward to renewing his plans in the not too distant future.”
Despite our differences, we should all hope for his full recovery.
