George Michael has been released from hospital following a car crash. His long-term boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, allayed fears that for former Wham! Star was seriously injured, confirming that he’s “good”.

“Of course I was worried, but I spoke to him and he is good,” said the 39-year-old. “He suffered a few bruises but there is nothing to worry about.” At the time of the crash, ambulance spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “A man who we believe to be in his 40s sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilisation by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care.” Michael flying to hospital sparked rumours that he was in a bad way, so the news that he has been released from hospital will be a relief to his fans. “I have no idea what happened,” added Fawaz. A spokesman for the police force said: “The exact circumstances of what happened are unclear at this time and until further investigations have been carried out, it would be inappropriate for us to comment.”

A spokeswoman for the singer, who has recently been suffering from various illnesses, which forced him out of some live dates, had said: “George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident, no third party was involved. He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine. We have no further comment at this time."
