At the age of ten, Filan started playing basketball, which later caused him health problems. It is so serious that he has to undergo an operation.
“For about 50 years I have lived and fought with basketball knee. I walk very badly. Now I am already in preparation for the operation. A classic operation awaits me. They’re going to replace my entire knee joint,” he revealed to the newspaper. He remains calm before the procedure. Regular rehabilitation is really worth it if he is to get rid of the pain.
