He postponed five consecutive gigs on his current tour due to a bacterial infection, and a sixth because of thunder and lighting storms.

But Sir Tom Jones was back on top form on Monday, as he performed to a sold out crowd in Atalya, Turkey.

The music icon, 78, seemed to be back in his element as he stepped out on stage and sang his heart out for his adoring fans.

Sir Tom was forced to cancel his gig at York Racecourse on Friday because of the thunder and lightning storms in the area.

This came after he was forced to postpone what was the fifth consecutive gig on his current tour, thanks to a bacterial infection that saw him rushed to hospital.

The last update on Sir Tom’s condition came on Friday when it was revealed that the The Voice judge's infection was being 'well managed' by medical professionals and that he was 'in good spirits'.

The statement read: 'Sir Tom has a bacterial infection for which he is being treated in hospital.

'The condition is being well managed and under doctors’ orders, appropriate recovery time and rest is advised.

'Sir Tom is in good spirits and wants to extend both his heartfelt appreciation and his sincere apologies to all who planned to attend the shows, as well as those involved in the events.'

The singer was due to perform at Chester Racecourse last Thursday night before heading to Germany and Finland and back to the UK for a string of dates next month.

Fans with tickets to Sir Tom's current cancelled shows have been told they can get full refunds, and some dates have been rescheduled.

Last September, the Burning Down The House crooner was forced to scrap his US tour - just five days before it was scheduled to kick off - due to ill health.
