Sir Elton John was hospitalised in Los Angeles on Wednesday, after falling ill with a serious respiratory infection.

The Rocket Man checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the early hours and was subjected to a series of tests.

Sir Elton was told he needed "complete rest and antibiotic treatment to prevent damage" and doctors ordered him to take seven days off from performing.

As a result, he's scrapped this week's upcoming shows in Las Vegas.

The website reports Sir Elton has since been released from the hospital.
