Mick Jagger shares health update after undergoing heart surgery

He's on the road to recovery...

The Rolling StonesMick Jagger appears to be fighting fit after undergoing heart surgery.

The Stones were recently forced to postpone a number of tour dates as Jagger underwent heart valve replacement surgery at New York’s Presbyterian Hospital.

“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support,” he told fans after the operation. “I’m feeling much better now and on the mend – and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”

Now, Jagger has shared a photo to confirm that he’s back on his feet after the operation. “A walk in the park,” he captioned the snap.

This comes after Jagger’s younger brother Chris spoke of how his condition was spotted during a routine check-up. The same condition killed The Clash’s Joe Strummer back in 2002.

“Mick is doing OK,” Chris told the Sunday People. “I spoke to him – he’s good. It just showed up on a scan so it could happen to anybody, you know.

“It happened to Joe. He came back from walking the dogs and his wife found him collapsed on the sofa. He had this valve problem.  His father died from it. It was hereditary. With Mick it came on a check-up.”

Chris continued: “That is why when you get to a certain age they want to check for this, check for that. You get to 70, you got to be careful, you know. I’ve had a few health issues. At least he has not got to wait in line for the NHS.”

The Rolling Stones will release a new ‘best of ‘ compilation ‘Honk‘ on April 19.
