Mick Jagger will reportedly undergo heart valve replacement surgery after cancelling the Rolling Stones' latest tour.

The 75-year-old is set to have a damaged valve replaced during the operation in a New York City hospital this week, according to online US news website Drudge Report.

Jagger was forced to postpone the nine-week 'No Filter' tour across the US and Canada after doctors told him he was not in a sufficiently healthy condition to go on stage.

The band's world tour officially started in Germany in September 2017 with a concert in Hamburg. The Stones have since toured Europe and the UK and in November announced shows in the US and Canada.

Jagger, a father of eight who is worth an estimated €314m, was spotted yesterday for the first time since his poor health was revealed.

He was on a family beach outing in Miami. The rock veteran was pictured with his model daughter Georgia May (27) and two-year-old son Deveraux.
