IL DIVO star Carlos Martin has been spotted looking happy in healthy in a social media video just days before he was put in an "induced coma".
The singer could be seen chatting to his fans as he sunbathed poolside in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, ahead of the final leg of Il Divo's tour.
Spanish star Carlos, 53, chatted away in the selfie video as he promoted the upcoming shows across the UK, in Southend, Bournemouth and Brighton.
He talked enthusiastically about the performance – later sharing a video clip from showing the baritone on stage with his bandmates and looking healthy.
"Hello everyone – so here we are in Maspalomas, and tonight is the first day of the tour," Carlos told his fans ahead of the packed-out show.
Carlos then once again took to social media to promote the Brighton show hours before it kicked off on December 4 shortly after touching down in the UK.
"Here we are in Brighton doing our fourth of the UK Il Divo Christmas Tour," he beamed to his followers. "Beautiful Christmas songs. Don't miss it!"
Carlos and his bandmates – Urs Bühler, David Miller, and Sébastien Izambard – went on to perform in Bath two days later before he fell unwell.
The star is now reportedly in an induced coma after being rushed to hospital in Manchester, leading to all of Il Divo's shows being postponed until 2022.
Today, his bandmates said they were "hoping and praying" for Carlos' recovery as he remains in a strict observation unit at Manchester Royal Hospital.
Il Divo wrote to Twitter: "Our dear friend and partner, Carlos, is in the hospital. We are hoping and praying for a speedy recovery."
