Sir Paul McCartney is recovering from his recent bout of bad health with a sun-soaked vacation on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

The Beatles legend was hospitalised in Japan last month (May14) after falling sick with a virus, and he scrapped his entire Asian tour to give himself time to heal.

He jetted back to his native Britain as soon as he was well enough to travel, and he has now headed off on a break with his wife Nancy Shevell ahead of his American tour, which kicks off in New York on 5 July (14).

MCCartney was pictured relaxing on a beach in Ibiza and swimming in the sea with Shevell on Sunday (22Jun14).
