Before you go into a panic attack, Bono is O.K.

Bono is setting the record straight and is denying reports that he was taken to hospital with chest pains while on holiday in the south of France.

He did go to the Princess Grace hospital in Monaco but for a routine check up, his spokeswoman said.

"Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare," she said in a statement.

"Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."

The rumors started in an Irish newspaper and several websites saying that Bono had experienced heart palpitations and pains while on holiday. You can check out the original story that sent everyone spinning here at the Irish Independent.
