Igor’s close friend and former French education minister Luc Ferry also confirmed the star was in intensive care after contracting the virus in December.

It comes after his beloved twin brother, Grichka, died on December 15, after he was allegedly admitted to Paris after receiving Covid.

A source close to the deceased brothers has confirmed that the couple were both unvaccinated against the virus before their tragic death.
