Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

GRAMMY Award-win­ning pop star Sam Smith has un­der­gone suc­cess­ful vo­cal cord surgery – thanks to a fa­mous medic.

Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal said in a state­ment yes­ter­day – on the singer’s 23rd birth­day – that he is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery.

The surgery, to stop re­cur­rent vo­cal cord bleed­ing, was per­formed by Dr Steven Zei­t­els – who has per­formed the same pro­ce­dure on Aero­smith rocker Steven Tyler and Brit star Adele. Smith’s song

won Gram­mys for song and record of the year and he was also named best new artist in Fe­bru­ary. The Bri­tish’s crooner’s

was also named best pop vo­cal al­bum.

Sam’s con­di­tion was the re­sult of un­sta­ble blood ves­sels in the vo­cal cord that can rup­ture and pre­vent per­for­mance.

His next live show is sched­uled for July 18.
