David Furnish assures fans Elton is on the mend

Wednesday May 30, 2012

Sir Elton John is on the mend, his civil partner David Furnish has announced.

The star had been suffering from a respiratory infection which resulted in him being admitted to hospital.

The singer cancelled three Las Vegas performances after being taken to hospital earlier this month.

Speaking at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards, David - who has a toddler, Zachary, with the singer - said Sir Elton was getting better.

"Thank you for your well wishes," he said. "He's doing incredibly well and recovering."

Sir Elton was admitted to Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for a series of tests but went home the same day.

The singer, who is due to play at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert, has said in a statement that he was sorry he could not be with his fans.
