Ozzy Osbourne has been treated in intensive care amid fears he may have developed pneumonia.
The rock star was rushed to a private hospital critical facility after his suspected bronchitis got worse.
His wife Sharon and their two children Jack and Kelly, along with other relatives, have been trying to keep his spirits up for the past three days.
A source told UK newspaper the Sun that Ozzy has been really struggling with flu which turned into bronchitis. Doctors feared he could contract pneumonia which, in a person over 70, can be fatal.
‘This sparked a lot of panic among those closest to him, but doctors reassured everyone he was in the best possible hands.
‘Ozzy’s a fighter and is getting better day by day. The worst is over, he’s smiling again, and he can’t wait to get up on stage.’
The 70-year-old has spent the past 11 days in hospital but is due to be released later this week.
