Sir Mick – his eldest child, Karis Jagger, aged 48 – is also the grandfather of five children and, in 2014, he became an old grandfather for the first time.
The Rolling Stones said that doctors had told Sir Mick that he should not go on a journey because he needed "medical treatment", although he was expected to make a "complete recovery".
When news broke about his illness this weekend, a source near Jagger told the Daily Telegraph: “Our illness is not a mystery, our physical injury is due to our vigorous preparations before the trip . Doctors have told him to take it easily and focus on his recovery. “
In a post on Twitter, the singer said he was "disappointed" to let fans disappoint and insist that he would "work very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can".
Jagger's co-players suddenly showed their support to Jagger, with Keith Richards, 75, tweeting: “Everyone is really disappointed but we need to look after things and we'll see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you! ”
Guitarist Ronnie Wood, 71, added: “We'll miss you over the next few weeks, but we're looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Here's to Mick – thanks for your supportive messages we mean a lot to us. ”
