Popular American comedian, Ed McMahon is reportedly suffering from pneumonia and bone cancer. He has been admitted into intensive care.
McMahon, 85, who is best known as Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" sidekick, was admitted to a California hospital three weeks ago, his publicist Howard Bragman said.
"He's a fighter. He's a Marine. He's a strong man, and we remain hopeful at this point," the New York Daily News quoted Bragman as saying.
"He's not the type of guy you count out," he added.
Bragman would not say where McMahon was being treated or discuss his illness, but, according to reports, he has bone cancer and pneumonia.
