The Canadian singer Leonard Cohen collapsed on stage while on tour in Spain on Friday night.
He was part-way through his song "Bird on the Wire" in Valencia when he fainted, causing the band to stop playing and rush to his aid in front of concertgoers. Footage of Cohen kneeling down several times and then keeling over sideways has been placed on YouTube by a fan. He was taken to hospital and later released. The musician will be 75 years old tomorrow.
