George Michael hospitalised after collapsing at home

A representative for the singer said he was in hospital for 'routine tests'

George Michael has reportedly been taken to hospital after collapsing at home.

The Mirror writes that a 999 call was made by a friend of the singer and two ambulances arrived at his north London home. They allegedly spent four hours there with the singer before taking him to hospital for further treatment. A statement released by Michael’s agent said: “George Michael was in hospital for routine tests.” The incident happened last Thursday.

An Ambulance Service spokesman commented: “We were called just before 8am. We sent two ambulance crews and staff treated a man, who was taken to hospital.”

Michael released the ‘Symphonica’ live album earlier this year. The singer made headlines last year when he was airlifted to hospital in May after apparently falling from his car on the M1 motorway. An eyewitness said that Michael had fallen from his vehicle after trying to close the car door while the vehicle was in motion.
