George Michael may spend Xmas at home

2011-12-21 11:33

Vienna - British pop star George Michael is doing well in hospital in Vienna but whether he will be able to spend Christmas back in Britain was still uncertain, one of his Austrian doctors said on Tuesday.

"We know that he is doing well. And we are generally optimistic," Christoph Zielinski of Vienna's General Hospital (AKH) told ORF radio.

On whether Michael would be able to return home for the holidays or have to spend Christmas in hospital, Zielinski only said that the matter still had to be decided with the patient.

The 48-year-old former Wham! singer was admitted to hospital last month with a severe bout of pneumonia, forcing him to postpone the rest of his Symphonica tour, having performed 45 shows to date.

Little news has since filtered out over his condition, with all eyes directed instead on Michael's website and the Twitter postings of his partner Fadi Fawaz for updates.
