Iconic singer-songwriter Marianne Faithfull in hospital with coronavirus

'Broken English' singer Marianne Faithfull is in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, her management confirms.

Marianne Faithfull has been admitted to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, the legendary singer-songwriter's management have confirmed.

The 73-year-old was one of the stars of the so-called 'British Invasion' of the US in the 1960s and is known for her distinctive raspy voice, gained as a result of battles with laryngitis and drugs early in her career.

A spokesperson for Faithfull told the Daily Mail: "Marianne Faithfull's manager Francois Ravard has confirmed that she is being treated for Covid-19 in hospital in London.

"She is stable and responding to treatment, we all wish her well and a full and speedy recovery."

The 'Broken English' singer - former girlfriend of Mick Jagger during his '60s pomp - has had a history of health issues and in 2014 was forced to cancel her 50th anniversary world tour as a result of an infection caused by a hip injury.

Almost 1.2 million people worldwide have now tested positive for COVID-19, with more than 64,500 losing their lives.
