Singer Phil Collins appeared frail as he was pushed around Sydney airport in a wheelchair on Thursday following the Australian leg of his Not Dead Yet tour.

The 68-year-old, who was holding a walking stick, has been left struggling to stand following multiple surgeries.  

Phil has been performing from a chair for the last couple of years and, not letting his ailments get in the way, he has further dates lined up in Europe throughout June.

Nick Collins, Phil's 17-year-old son, was on the drums throughout, handling some of his father's most iconic drum tracks of all time. 

The Against All Odds hitmaker announced his comeback tour in October 2016 after coming out of retirement. 

The musical icon had planned to kick off his return with five nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall with tickets for the shows selling out in 15 seconds.

But following a fall on the way to the bathroom a year later, the British singer was forced to cancel the shows and reschedule them for November.

A statement was released at the time, which read; ‘Phil suffers from "drop foot" as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk.'

Phil kicked off his Australian leg of the Not Dead Yet tour in Brisbane last month and two months before that, he toured around America following a ten-year break.
