Sir Mick Jagger has shared the first picture of himself since undergoing heart surgery. 

The 75-year-old rock star, who had a heart valve replaced last week, was dressed in a cap and shirt and captioned the photo “A walk in the park!”

In a previous post on Twitter, the Rolling Stones frontman told fans he was “on the mend” and thanked medical staff for their help.

He wrote: “Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”

An earlier statement from a representative said he was “doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery”.

The Rolling Stones were forced to postpone their latest tour, which was due to start in April, so Jagger could be treated.

He said he was “devastated” but would be “working hard” to get back on stage as soon as possible.

A statement from the group said: “Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment.”

US media reports said surgeons accessed the singer’s heart valve through his femoral artery.

Jagger has reportedly led a healthy lifestyle in recent years, giving up drugs and rarely drinking alcohol.

He is also said to eat and drink healthily and exercise regularly.
