Queen guitarist Brian May says he is “turning a corner” and has got his “sparkle” back after suffering a heart attack earlier this year.

The 73-year-old said in May that doctors had found three blocked arteries stopping the supply of blood to his heart after he was treated for pain due to a rip in his gluteus maximus and a compressed sciatic nerve.

Appearing on BBC's The One Show, he offered an update on his recovery.

He said: “I’m OK now. That’s all you need to know. I got hit pretty hard and pretty low. A series of medical incidents, I guess you could say. It takes you very low.

“So I am now on physical exercise and cardio rehab and I think I am turning a corner. I feel like I have got my sparkle back, just in the last few days, actually.

“But it has been a while. It was a tough one.”

May previously said he was under pressure to have a triple bypass but eventually chose to have stents (tubes that open blocked passageways) put in.
