Drake: 'It breaks my heart' to pull out of Wireless

International artist Drake has announced he has pulled out of Wireless festival.

He was due to appear as headliner at both events in Birmingham and London this weekend.

To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together."
