Elton John fights back tears in tribute to George Michael

George Michael boyfriend Fadi Fawaz happy death

"Somebody who has been abusing a drug for a long period or alcohol might show signs they have but to be very clear for that to be the cause of death further tests are needed", they said.

Fans of the singer and former Wham! member were shocked by the news that he had died of heart failure, aged 53, on Christmas Day. "The results of these tests are unlikely to be known for several weeks".

A source told the Telegraph it is "very common" for further tests to be carried out in unexplained deaths even when a cause of death is suspected.

John, in his Thursday concert, called Michael's death one of the "saddest moments" of his career.

Police will prepare a file for the Oxfordshire coroner. "I will never stop missing you xx".

Elton John contributed to the list of artists honoring musicians by paying tribute to his longtime friend George Michael.

The online petition argues: "George Michael deserves a posthumous knighthood for his combined contribution towards music and his unwavering support for numerous charities that he generously supported throughout his life". "I have lost a beloved friend - the kindest, most generous soul and a brilliant artist".

"The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this hard and emotional time".
