George Michael's family travel to Vienna

George's family have flown to Austria to be at the stricken star's bedside.

The 48-year-old singer, who is suffering from a severe bout of pneumonia, has been joined by his father Kyriacos Panayiotou – known as Jack Panos – as well as sisters Melanie and Yiod.

A 'close friend' told the Daily Mail that: "His whole family are with him. They are very close-knit. George is just such a lucky man in that sense. He’s so adored"

The former Wham! star's boyfriend, hair stylist Fadi Fawaz, has kept a bedside vigil since the singer fell ill on Monday last week.

Michael began feeling poorly hours before he was due on stage in Vienna and on Friday he was forced to cancel the rest of his Symphonica tour.
