Flatley On The Mend
LATEST: Irish dance superstar MICHAEL FLATLEY has been discharged from hospital despite suffering from a serious viral illness. The LORD OF THE DANCE star has left the London clinic where he was undergoing treatment for the mystery ailment, but insists he is "on the mend". Flatley's miraculous recovery comes after two weeks of speculation over his condition. The dancer was admitted to hospital two weeks ago when he came down with an illness rumoured to be a viral infection. Flatley's condition was deemed so serious he cancelled all 20 European dates of his Celtic Tiger show, but a spokesperson maintains his condition is not life-threatening. It is thought the 48-year-old's illness is unrelated to an earlier diagnosis of facial skin cancer in 2003.
