Got this news from a friend in Europe this afternoon, and it seems to have bubbled up to Crunchyroll...

Leiji Matsumoto, creator of anime classics like "Captain Harlock" & "Galaxy Express 999", and key designer on the original "Space Battleship Yamato" (a.k.a. "Star Blazers" in the USA) had suffered a stroke while traveling in Italy.

According to the latest news, he has been admitted to Turin Hospital.

This has been covered in news articles and the Talkback Forum, so I'm closing this thread.
