Stefanie Sun fans can rest easy. The homegrown Mandopop star did not collapse after her concert in Chongqing last Saturday.

Their concern was stoked by online photos of her being carried in the arms of a bodyguard and also sitting in a wheelchair at a hospital.

She has since posted on Weibo on Monday morning: "Slept the whole day, I'm back to life! I hadn't recovered fully from the flu I had, so there was no perfect ending (for the concert). I have made everyone worry. Today I can return home to see my baby! So happy."

Her manager of six years, Mr Wayne Cao, stresses that Sun, 35, had made her own way off the stage and into a waiting car to return to the hotel after the gig. In fact, she posted on Weibo at 10.58pm that night after performing more than 30 songs in front of some 50,000 fans: "(thumbs up emoticon) Chongqing. (I have no voice left.. haha)"
