Robin Williams has assured fans he is recovering well after undergoing heart surgery in March.
Doctors warned the Good Will Hunting star he would have just weeks to live if he didn't undergo a life-saving heart operation to replace an aortic valve.
Williams went under the knife at the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio on 13 March - and now he is making swift progress on the road to recovery.
Williams says, "I want to thank everyone for all your kind letters, prayers and thoughts. Just wanna let you know I'm doing better! See!"
