With the film 'L'Homme de Rio' (1965) he moved towards more commercial cinema, mainly comedies and action films and in the 1990s he tried to focus on production and theatre, with slight cameos as an actor on the big screen.

Belmondo retired as an actor in 2001, the year when he suffered a stroke, and in 2016, he was awarded with an honorary 'Golden Lion' prize at the Venice Film Festival.

Founder of PSG

Belmondo was also one of the founding members of Paris Saint-Germain back in 1970 and revealed that he had always been a club supporter.

"We were a group of friends," Belmondo wrote in column for Le Parisien a few years ago.

"Francis Borelli, Daniel Hechter and Jacky Bloch asked me to collaborate with them to set up Paris Saint-Germain.

"Together we put the money to found the club. I couldn't stay at the forefront for long because it wasn't compatible with my schedule. But I'm still a supporter of the club."
