George Michael is slowly recovering as he battles pneumonia at a hospital in Austria.
The former Wham! star has cancelled a string of gigs on his Symphonica tour due to ill health, and he was admitted to a medical center in Vienna on Wednesday after being diagnosed with the potentially deadly illness.

But his representative has spoken out to reassure fans the Careless Whisper hitmaker’s condition is improving and he hopes to resume the tour after a period of rest.

The rep says, “He has improved. He has great care around him and is fine. He’s going to get better. Rest is the best cure.”
