Ozzy Osbourne Hospitalised Following Flu Complications

Heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne has been taken into hospital as a result of complications from a bout of flu, his wife and manager Sharon Osbourne has announced. A tweet from Mrs. Osbourne reads:

“As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.”

Ozzy recently had to cancel his European tour with fellow Midlanders, Judas Priest as a result of the illness, though he has also lent his likeness and name to a NetEnt slots game, appearing alongside other rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Motorhead and Guns N Roses.
