Boris Spassky: Following stroke, “some paralysis”

I had read that Boris Spassky suffered a life-threatening stroke last month, but I hadn’t been able to find any updates. This is all I know:

Boris Spassky, 75, former world champion and longtime adversary of Bobby Fischer, suffered a stroke in Moscow, while visiting as a guest at the Women’s Blitz championship. Although his life was in danger, latest reports are that he is in stable condition, can eat and move around, though he has suffered some paralysis on one side.
