|Paul denies he had heart surgery and says he feels great|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Thursday, 01/17/08 3:52 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Today on his official web site, Sir Paul has written to his fans to completely deny the media reports that he recently had heart surgery. He said:
"People are ringing and texting me saying 'are you ok?' and I hadn't seen the report so I was puzzled by so many enquiries about my health. So I think it's a good time to put this rumour to rest. What happened was, over a year ago during a routine medical examination, there was a minor irregularity which I needed to have tests for and which I have now been assured is completely fine. The media have only just recently reported an exaggerated version of this and that is why people have been asking me if I am ok. So this is where the story has come from. The media reports have, as usual, completely distorted the story, calling it an angioplasty, which is entirely untrue, and this is why so many friends have been concerned about my health."
Paul also said he feels great and he passed his most recent medical with flying colours.
