His health worries continue...

Brian May has revealed he "could have died" after suffering a heart attack.

The Queen guitarist made viral headlines earlier this month, when reports he had suffered an injury to his glutes went public.

It seems that this isn't quite the case, however, with Brian May posting a new update on his Instagram.

It turns out that the searing pain he was suffering didn't come from a "bizarre gardening accident", but is in fact related to a compressed sciatic nerve.

Receiving treatment for this, it seems that Brian May also suffered a minor heart attack - but admits he "could have died" in the incident.

"I thought I was a very healthy guy," he says. "But I turned out to have three arteries that were congested and in danger of blocking the supply of blood to my heart."

Doctors fitted the Queen guitarist with three stents, and this has led him back to full health.

He comments: "I walked out with a heart that's very strong now, so I think I'm in good shape for some time to come."
