George Michael "Recovering Steadily" From Pneumonia
Doctors have also dismissed reports of any other health issues...
George Michael is said to be "recovering steadily" from pneumonia, according to the doctors who are treating the unwell singer.
The Wham! legend, who was hospitalised in Austria with the respiratory condition last week, is apparently making good progress, with the physicians ending speculation that he is suffering from any further health issues.
In a statement, Professors Gottfried Locker and Christoph Zielinski said: "The latest development in Mr Michael's case, which has evolved from a severe pneumococcal infection, necessitated intensive care due to its severity and extension."
"We are happy to announce that Mr Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped."
They continued: "There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken."
"Mr Michael is receiving precisely the same treatment as any ordinary patient in Austria would receive at the hospital for this disease."
As a result of his illnes, the Faith singer has been forced to cancel his entire Symphonica tour, with reports suggesting there are fears for George's voice as a result of being on a ventilator - which could alter his vocals by forcing air in and out of his lungs.
