Ozzy Osbourne, 71, is in ‘good spirits’ amid Parkinson’s disease battle as rocker’s wife Sharon reveals appointment with specialist has been postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic
Sharon Osbourne has revealed her husband Ozzy is in ‘good spirits’ as he continues to battle Parkinson’s disease.
The rock legend, 71, announced in January he was fighting the disorder which began after he suffered a fall last year.
The Black Sabbath singer said he was on a ‘whole host’ of medications to treat his nerve pain.

But in an interview with ET Canada, wife Sharon, 67, said he was ‘in good spirits’ and ‘doing good’.
The couple had planned to fly to Switzerland to see a professor who specialises in the Parkin 2 condition but their appointments have now been postponed due to coronavirus.
Sharon said: ‘Unfortunately, you know, Switzerland closed all the borders. We’ll get there, though.

‘Hopefully, we’ll get there later on in the summer. So, fingers crossed, everything crossed.’
Sharon added that her family including children Kelly, Aimee and Jack are all well during lockdown.
She said: ‘We’re all doing great because everybody in the family is well and we cannot complain. I just can’t complain.’
‘You know cabin fever, yes. Getting a little edgy with each other, yes! I’d love to go walk around a shopping mall for an hour. But that’ll happen.’
Due to precautionary messages, the family had been self-isolating away from one another, with Kelly explaining to fans that when she finally got to see her parents, she wasn’t able to kiss or hug them – which father Ozzy said ‘broke his heart’.

Taking to Instagram, TV star shared pictures of her sitting by the pool with Sharon and Ozzy, while keeping a safe distance and wearing protective masks.
The trio were seen soaking up the sun in their garden, with Kelly sitting on one side of the pool and her mother Sharon sitting on the other side opposite her.
Kelly finally got to hug her brother Jack last week, who had been self-isolating because of his relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, after she tested negative for the virus.
The TV star, 35, had been unable to have any form of physical contact with Jack because of his vulnerability and he is therefore at higher risk should he catch COVID-19.

The siblings embraced in the clip, and beginning to sing Celine Dion’s Titanic theme tune My Heart Will Go On, before bursting into laughter.
Kelly captioned the video: ‘Omg omg omg I got tested and I am negative for covid and I finally got to hug my brother.
‘Sadly I was exposed and was showing symptoms due to my brother having MS and my father having Parkinson’s I was told to be tested.’
