Representatives for Paul McCartney have confirmed that the legendary musician was indeed admitted to a Tokyo hospital, as reported earlier today.

Happily, they add that the former Beatle is expected to “make a complete recovery,” although they would not reveal whether or not McCartney had yet been discharged from the undisclosed facility.

“Since contracting a virus last week that led to the postponement of tour dates, Paul received successful medical treatment at a hospital in Tokyo,” the statement read. “He will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days rest. Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world.”

Concern over McCartney’s health has been steadily rising throughout the week, as he postponed first one, then two, and then all of the dates on his planned tour of Japan. His next scheduled concert date is June 14 in Lubbock, Texas.
