Robbie Williams forced to stop mid way through performance due to long Covid

Robbie Williams was forced to pause a gig over the weekend as he told fans he was suffering from the effects of long Covid.

The singer, 49, was performing at Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands on Saturday June 17th when he temporarily paused his performance, telling the crowd: "No, stop stop. I'm f**ked. I'm f**ked."

The former Take That star – who recently sold a property portfolio worth $44million – paused things just before he was set to launch into his fourth song ‘Monsoon’, before he signalled for his band to stop playing and was seen bending over to catch his breath.

He continued: "It's long covid, I've got long covid. It's not my f**king age, you f**kers!"

Luckily, Robbie was able to return to his show shortly after taking a few moments to rest and the rest of the performance went smoothly.

The star is believed to have previously had Covid on two occasions.

He first contracted the virus in April 2020 while in Los Angeles with his wife Ayda Field, 41, and their four children: Teddy, ten, Charlton, eight, Coco, four and Beau, three.

In January 2021, after flying to St Barts with the family, hereportedly tested positive for the virusfor a second time.

It’s believed the family were forced to extend their New Year’s getaway so the singer could self-isolate.

The singer previously revealed he hadtravelled to a mountain in Switzerlandto avoid getting coronavirus.

In September 2020, he told Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2 that he had relocated with his wife and kids in an attempt to avoid the virus.

When Steve asked if he was at his home in LA, Robbie responded: "No I'm not. I'm somewhere in Switzerland up a mountain.

"Well, I'm a bit neurotic and I thought where can I place myself where it won't get me?

"And I thought, we'll just live up the Mont Blanc for 6 months… it's really warm actually, it's really lovely," he explained.
