Tina Turner has denied a report in a German newspaper that she recently suffered a stroke while preparing for a holiday in Austria.

The report quoted a man who claimed to be the singer’s driver, saying: “She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery. Tina had to cancel her holiday to recover, [but] she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach”.

A spokesperson for the singer denied that the man quoted was Turner’s driver, or that she had been planning to holiday in Austria, while adding that her client had definitely not had a stroke, mild or otherwise. The rep added: “The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health”.
