Morrissey is discharged from hospital

Morrissey has been discharged from hospital after collapsing on stage in Swindon last night (October 24) with breathing difficulties.

The former Smiths frontman fell to the ground as he was performing opening song ‘This Charming Man’ at the Oasis Leisure Centre before two of his band members carried him offstage.

“Good evening… probably,” he said before opening the show with what would be his only song.

Onlookers said he appeared to be “straining” to perform, “wincing” as he did so, and when the song came to the end he sagged to his knees and slumped to the stage.

He was then taken to Great Western Hospital, at around 9pm where he was kept in overnight.

A Great Western Hospital spokeswoman said he was kept in overnight as a “precautionary measure” but was “much improved” and had been discharged, reports BBC News.

A statement posted on his website also read today: “Morrissey is in stable condition after his collapse in Swindon Saturday night. Thanks go out to all his well wishers, more information will be posted as soon as it is available.”
