Ozzy Osbourne is now breathing on his own, after being treated in intensive care.
The vocalist recently postponed his next UK tour after contracting the flu. He later developed bronchitis and was sent to hospital.
According to the Sun newspaper, “Doctors feared he could contract pneumonia which, in a person over 70, can be fatal.
“Ozzy’s a fighter and is getting better day by day. The worst is over, he’s smiling again, and he can’t wait to get up on stage.”
Sharon Osbourne gave an update on her husband’s condition. Speaking on CBS’s The Talk she said: “He’s doing good. He’s breathing on his own.” She added: Ozzy is “overcome by the response he’s had.”
