Los Angeles - Mumford & Sons star Ted Dwane is at home recovering after having brain surgery.

The 28-year-old bassist had emergency surgery last week after a scan revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain, but he is now convalescing and has thanked fans for their messages of support.

In a posting on the band's website - accompanied by a picture of him sporting a shaved head - he revealed: "Bear with a sore head! Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I'm home."

Dwane was discharged from hospital last Thursday and the band - which also includes Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshall - were pleased to report on his progress dubbing him a hero for the way he has handled the situation.

Cancelled shows

They also joked that it has been "medically proved" that he does have a brain.

Mumford & Sons cancelled several US dates on their 'Summer Stampede' tour including appearances at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

They are due to headline the final night of the Glastonbury music festival, which takes place over the weekend of Friday 28 June to Sunday 30 June.
