Placido Domingo has cancelled six performances in Madrid while he undergoes treatment

Placido Domingo has said he expects his health to improve soon, after he was admitted to a Madrid hospital with a blockage in an artery of the lungs.

The opera singer has cancelled six performances this month in the Spanish capital while he undergoes treatment.

The Three Tenors member said in a post on his Facebook page: "I will be feeling much better soon."

He thanked fans for their support and said: "The saddest part of it all is being in my own city and unable to perform for Madrid's public."

The singer's representative has said the 72-year-old is expected to make a full recovery after resting for at least three weeks.

Doctors said the pulmonary embolism was caused by a blood clot.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
