Sir Rod Stewart has revealed his 11-year-old son Aiden was rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack after suddenly collapsing while playing soccer.
Stewart, an outspoken supporter of Covid-19 vaccines and mandatory vaccination, recalled his young son going ‘blue and unconscious’ while playing for his Young Hoops Under-12s team.
Although the Maggie May hitmaker didn’t share details of when the incident occurred, he revealed that an ambulance was called. Stewart told to FourFourTwo magazine: ‘We thought my boy had a heart attack.’
Last year, Stewart has voiced his fury at ‘anti-vaxxers’ and declared the only people welcome at his Christmas party would be those who had both vaccines and a booster.
The musician has received at least three Covid-19 jabs and said people who refuse to get vaccinated make him ‘angry’.
He branded so-called ‘anti-vaxxers’ as ‘killers’ for not taking the vaccine as they are more likely to catch and spread the virus.
Sir Rod told Times Radio Drive host John Pienaar: ‘It makes me angry, especially in America where they talk about “It’s my right, it’s my freedom.”
‘No it’s not! Because you are a killer, and you can be killed.’
‘We have a big party at the house every year’, he said. ‘We have a marquee and a band. We’re just going to make sure everybody has been tested. It’s dead simple.
‘If you haven’t been tested, if you haven’t got the two vaccines and the booster, you can’t come.’
