However, Walz stated in an interview with the “Bild” newspaper that his current situation is not a cause for concern: “Everything is fine. I just had a small operation at the foot. Something was done wrong with a pedicure and then corrected again through the operation. “
Udo added: “I am no longer allowed to sit in the armchair in the front of the waiting area in my own salon. The waiting area has been closed due to hygiene requirements.

Six days a week, including Saturdays. ” But the star Figaro is anything but sad, as he admitted to “Bild”: “I love it, temporarily to sit in a wheelchair. That way I can get to customers much faster! “
