Russell Watson 'recovering well'

Watson has sold more than four million albums around the world

Hospital statement

Singer Russell Watson is "recovering well" from emergency surgery on a brain tumour and is in a stable condition, a hospital official has said.

"He is talking for brief periods and has been eating small amounts of food," added Michael Stroud of the private Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle.

But medical staff had warned the star, who is 40, that the recovery process "may be a long haul", Mr Stroud said.

Watson fell ill during a recording session on Wednesday.

He had become suddenly incapacitated and had a number of symptoms, including a "dramatic deterioration of vision".

An MRI scan revealed a re-growth of a previous benign tumour, which was removed a year ago, accompanied by bleeding.

I have his (I think) first CD. A great voice. Since the passing of Pavarotti the world cannot afford to lose another great tenor. Let's hope this time his recovery is swift and complete.

I hadn't heard this sad news.
I echo RJ's wishes for his complete recovery.

What always struck me about Russell, as well as his wonderful voice, was his lack of affectation, he's a true northern lad, after me own heart!
