Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards suffered a brain haemorrhage after he fell from a palm tree at the weekend, it has been reported.

The star injured himself in a bizarre accident in Fiji last week (April 27). Initial reports indicated he had suffered “mild concussion” following the incident at an exclusive resort.

According to The Sun, after Richards had continued to complain of dull headaches tests revealed a small haemorrhage. He will now have an operation to drain his skull.

Richards is said to have had the accident as he and bandmate Ronnie Wood tried to climb the tree to get coconuts at the Wakaya Club luxury resort. The star lost his grip and plunged to the ground.
