Sir Tom Jones, 82, steps out with a walking stick in Denmark

Sir Tom Jones, 82, uses a walking stick as he steps out in Denmark while on his Surrounded By Time tour – as he is seen for the first time since denying collapsing in Budapest

Tom Jones leaned on a walking stick as he stepped out in Copenhagen, Denmark on Friday after the latest show on his Surrounded By Time tour. 

It’s the first time the legendary singer has been spotted since he was forced to deny claims that he had collapsed in Budapest, after cancelling his show in the city at the last minute.

The It’s Not Unusual singer left Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens in his stage ensemble, which featured a patterned black shirt with white line detailing.

He teamed the bold top with a pair of black trousers and matching shoes, adding a black face covering over his nose and mouth.

Tom was surrounded by an entourage as he left, holding onto a black cane whilst making his way to a black car.  

Tom then took his seat in the black car as team members waved goodbye to the star. 

It comes just a week after the singer had to cancel his Budapest show, admitting he had contracted viral laryngitis.

The Welsh star was originally thought to have collapsed ahead of the show as he makes his way across the United Kingdom and mainland Europe with his current tour.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Tom Jones collapsed, so his concert was cancelled tonight and doctors were called to the stadium. His management has set August 16th as the new date for the concert.’

But speaking out to rubbish the reports, Tom released a statement via Instagram, insisting ‘I did not collapse’.

He told his 452k followers: ‘Hello to all concerned. I travelled last night from the UK to Budapest and woke this morning with an uncomfortable throat. 

A specialist came to visit and diagnosed “viral laryngitis.” He strongly advised postponing this evening’s show and prescribed medication and vocal rest.’ 

He added: ‘I did not “collapse” anywhere at any time, that is pure rumour. Hopefully the inflammation will calm soon as I am looking forward to continuing my wonderful summer tour. 

‘Unfortunately the show had to be cancelled at the last minute, and for that I am very sorry. However, the show in Budapest has been rescheduled and will take place on August 16. Thanks again for all your kind concern.’
