Sir Paul McCartney was "extremely moved" by his fans' messages of support after his hospitalisation in Japan and is now "doing fine" following his return to London, according to a representative.

The Beatles legend was struck down with a virus after arriving in the Far East for a series of gigs, and he ended up scrapping his entire Asian tour when he was admitted to hospital in Tokyo.

MCCartney was discharged from the facility and jetted back to London on Monday (26May14), and he is now said to be making a good recovery.

In a monthly newsletter sent out to his fans on Friday (30May14), a representative for the star writes, "You may... have heard that Paul unfortunately had to postpone his dates in Japan and South Korea this month. We'd like to assure you that Paul is doing fine and he was extremely moved by all the messages from fans around the world. More info will follow on those dates, so please keep checking"
