Ailing illusionist Roy Horn is recovering from the horrific tiger mauling that left him close to death, with the help of Christopher Reeve's therapist.

The star - whose partnership with fellow German SIEGFRIED FISCHBACHER made them multi-millionaires in Las Vegas - has been recovering in hospital ever since he was attacked onstage by tiger MONTECORE.

However, Horn is eager to let his fans know he is on the mend, saying, "You know, I almost had two feet in the grave, but now I'm doing better."
