Madrid - Opera singer Placido Domingo says he expects his health to improve soon, after he was admitted to a Madrid hospital with a blockage in an artery of the lungs.

Domingo has cancelled six performances this month in the Spanish capital while he undergoes treatment.

The Three Tenors member said in a post on Wednesday on his Facebook page, "I will be feeling much better soon."

He thanked fans for their support and said, "The saddest part of it all is being in my own city and unable to perform for Madrid's public."
