LONDON, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- British pop icon Elton John says he is feeling much better after battling the flu and an E.coli infection.
The 62-year-old singer was forced to cancel several concerts recently due to his illness, but has since recovered and attended his annual AIDS Foundation benefit in New York this week, the BBC reported.
"The worst thing about being in the hospital was that it's the first time I've been in bed for about nine days in the whole of my life," the British broadcaster quoted John as saying. "The worst thing was having to cancel shows, I hate that. But I'm back on my feet and I'm bouncing around now."
