Ronnie Wood has said Sir Mick Jagger is doing “really well” as he recovers from heart surgery.

The Rolling Stones were forced to postpone tour dates in the US and Canada while the frontman had medical treatment.

Sir Mick later told fans he was “on the mend” after he had a heart valve replaced in New York, and now his bandmates have revealed they have been sending him videos to cheer him up.

Wood told Hello! magazine: “Sally (his wife) and I went on a break to the Caribbean with Keith (Richards) and (his wife) Patti and sent him videos of us playing and singing get well songs on the guitar.

“That cracked him up. We’re all so pleased that he’s doing well.”

While he is waiting to get back on the road, Wood has been channelling his creative energy into paintings which pay tribute to the world-famous rockers, which he has shown to Sir Mick.

Wood said: “He was amused and impressed!

“He is doing really well. I spoke to him yesterday and he’s feeling great.”
