The 72-year-old rocker endured a “small heart attack” back in May this year, and at the time he said he was puzzled as to how the attack could have happened, because he is a “healthy guy” with “good blood pressure”.

And now, Brian thinks he might have gotten to the bottom of his health scare, as he believes he could have picked up coronavirus at the beginning of the year when his band Queen were still touring.

He said: “I think it’s possible that I had the COVID virus early on in the tour of Korea, Japan and Australia in January, and got through it, but it’s thickened the blood, which apparently it does, and that could have been the trigger that gave me the heart attack.

BRIAN May is a man with a lot on his mind: climate change, the global pandemic and recovering from a heart attack for starters. May has had a coronavirus test, which came back negative but, as he says, it was so long after he believes he was infected, it was unlikely to produce a result.

“I thought it was too early to get [COVID] but the evidence now seems to be that the virus was around.”

Brian previously said his heart attack lasted for “40 minutes”, and although he claimed he only experienced mild chest pain, he needed three tubes fitted into his arteries to help his blood flow.

And following his operation, Brian says it was his wife Anita who became his saving grace, as she helped nurse him back to health.

He added to the Daily Express newspaper: "She was incredible. She totally saved my life because I couldn't do anything and she just kind of nursed me, so I will forever be in her debt. She did an incredible job on me.”

Brian’s heart attack was made worse by an unrelated gardening incident which occurred just days before, in which he suffered a torn muscle, and a compressed sciatic nerve.

May admitted he “ could have died” from the state of his arteries, which he wouldn’t have known about if he didn’t

Queen’s Brian May has revealed a big scare from what he termed a “small heart atttack,” but is May had three arteries that were congested and in danger of blocking the supply to his heart . Nothing could tell me I was about to be in real trouble, I could have died from the blockages that were there.”

Speaking about his injuries at the time, he said: "I had an MRI and yes, I did have a rip in my gluteus maximus. It's so easy to make a connection, there's a rip there so that must be the cause of the pain, end of story. And no other tests were done.

"Now, a week later I'm still in agony. I mean real agony. I wanted to jump at some points. I could not believe the pain. And people are saying, 'That's not like a ripped muscle', so eventually I had another MRI.

"But this one I had one of the lower spine and sure enough we would discover that I had a compressed sciatic nerve, quite severely compressed, which is why I felt like someone had been putting a screwdriver in my back the entire time. It was excruciating ...

"So that's one side of the story, and I'm a lot better now. I'm free of that terrible pain that actually destroys your mind ..."
