George Michael has postponed a series of concerts after being admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia.

The singer was due to appear in Vienna as part of his Symphonica tour on Monday but cancelled two hours before the concert was due to start.

His publicist Connie Filippello said in a statement released last night that the 48-year-old has been "diagnosed with pneumonia and he is currently receiving treatment".

Austria's state broadcaster reported that he is being treated in Vienna's AKH hospital.
