London: Pop star Bryan Ferry was rushed to a hospital following a health scare.

The 65-year-old star was forced to cancel an appearance at an Olympics 2012 event following his illness.

There were initially fears the Roxy Music lead singer had suffered a heart attack. However, a spokesman for the star insisted last night that was not the case.

"Bryan has been rough for some time and he felt event worse today. So, he thought it was best for the doctors to look into it. We`re all obviously very concerned for him," a friend of the pop star told Daily Mail.

A spokesman for the star confirmed the musician was undergoing tests. "He has been feeling unwell and is having tests."

Ferry is one of the most famous figures of the 1970s glam rock scene. His hits with Roxy Music include `Virginia Plain`, `Love Is The Drug`, `Angel Eyes` and `Jealous Guy`.

Ferry famously dated Jerry Hall for two years before she left him for Mick Jagger in 1977.
