Despite being ordered to rest, Mick is said to have told friends he ‘feels great’ and that he is already ‘bored’ of taking it easy, sources told The Sun.

‘He’s massively frustrated, he wants to be getting back out there and at this moment in time he’s feeling absolutely fine,’ the source said. 

‘Of course he has taken the medical advice on board, but he looks after himself well and feels totally capable at this moment in time.
