Sir Paul McCartney has been forced to postpone US dates on his world tour as he continues to recover from a virus.

The former Beatle, who turns 72 later this month, cancelled a string of gigs in Japan and South Korea last month.

He has now said that he will be following doctors' orders to recover fully before he takes to the stage again.
