Boyzone's Keith Duffy has paid tribute to medical staff in Bangkok after a number of days in their care as he recovered from food poisoning and "a secondary bowel infection and viral infection".

Duffy took ill before the group's scheduled show in Bangkok last Thursday.

On Monday, he posted a picture of himself alongside staff from the World Medical Hospital in the Thai capital and wrote: "72 hours of a fever of 38/40 degrees With Diarrhea and Vomiting caused by contaminated food from bad hygiene in preparation!! The worst bad health experience of my life! A secondary bowel infection and viral infection!" 

"These ladies our [sic] my savior," Duffy continued. "They are saints Thank you ladies I love you! You've Given me a whole new perspective of selflessness I will never forget! God bless you all and thank you again! World medical hospital (WMC)."

Sharing another photo of Duffy with the medical team on the group's Instagram page, Boyzone wrote: "After three long days in hospital in Bangkok, Keith is back on his feet and will be flying to Adelaide today to join the Boyz for their show there on Tuesday night.

"Big love and thanks to all the wonderful staff that have looked after him and for all the messages of support that you guys have sent out to him. #Boyzone."
