Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley today dispelled rumours he is seriously ill as he walked out of a London hospital.
The 48-year-old dancer and choreographer left The London Clinic this afternoon where he was being treated for a mystery illness.
His 32-year-old wife Niamh O’Brien was at his side as he promised fans he's feeling much better and looking forward to being back on the road.
He said: “I am on the mend.”
On Thursday the US-born Riverdance star cancelled all 20 dates of his European Celtic Tiger tour, due to start yesterday. His publicist later revealed he had been in hospital for two weeks.
Media speculation suggested Flatley was battling a viral infection, with one newspaper quoting a source who claimed it was “the fight of his life”.
In April, Flatley revealed he had been treated for facial skin cancer in 2003, but said he had completely recovered. His latest illness is understood to be unrelated.
