Former Moloko singer Roisin Murphy is recovering after damaging her eye socket on stage in Russia on Saturday.

The Irish star hit her head on a chair during a show at Moscow's Ikra Club and was rushed to hospital for surgery.

A spokesman said Murphy lost "a lot of blood" and had severe concussion after the incident, but her vision was unaffected and she was "recovering well".

He added the singer, 34, had been ordered to rest for seven days, affecting her forthcoming European tour dates.

The 'Sing It Back' hitmaker had been due to play shows in Krakow, Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Munich and Vienna over the next week.

But a tour of Ireland and the UK, due to start on 26 November, should be unaffected, the spokesman added.
