Sir Elton John is on the mend from a respiratory infection which resulted in him being admitted to hospital, his civil partner David Furnish has said.

The singer cancelled three Las Vegas performances after being admitted to hospital earlier this month.

Speaking at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards, Furnish - who has a toddler, Zachary, with the singer - said Sir Elton was getting better.

"Thank you for your well wishes," he said. "He's doing incredibly well and recovering."

Furnish handed out an award with actress Naomi Watts to fashion designer Donatella Versace at the Glamour event.

Sir Elton was admitted to Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for a series of tests but went home the same day.

The singer, who is due to play at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert, has said in a statement that he was sorry he could not be with his fans.
