Canadian-born singer Leonard Cohen is recovering after collapsing on stage last night while performing in a concert in Valencia, Spain.
The Canadian performer was in the middle of singing his song, 'Bird On A Wire', when he collapsed and lost consciousness. The band stopped playing and rushed over to help him.
Cohen was treated at first by medical staff in the stadium but was then taken by ambulance to a local hospital, Nueve de Octubre in Valencia as a precaution.
One member of the band informed the crowd that Cohen had been suffering from stomach cramps and vomiting.
Cohen was released from hospital this morning and it is said that he was suffering from food poisoning.
Organisers of the current tour say that Monday's concert in Barcelona will go ahead as planned.
Until recent years Cohen was enjoying retirement but was forced out of it when, as the London Times reports it was discovered that he had lost royalties in a disputed case of mismanagement.
Cohen, who will be 75 on Monday, was a hit last year when he played the main stage at the Glastonbury music festival.
His song, 'Hallelujah', covered by UK X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, was last years Christmas number one in the UK charts.
Cohen will be performing in North America in the next few weeks.
