The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer sends a message to the UK star to wish him well.

Justin Bieber is the latest star to wish Nathan Sykes from The Wanted a speedy recovery after his surgery last week.

The 'Boyfriend' star posted a tweet to the 'I Found You' singer this week telling him to "stay strong", after Nathan underwent an operation to repair a haemorrhaging vocal cord on Friday (19th April).

Nathan first responded to a fan message asking him how his throat is doing now, telling the fan: "@jillsykestw not great but staying positive xx".

"@NathanTheWanted stay strong bro," Justin then posted back, causing Nathan to reply: "@justinbieber thanks mate. Hope to catch you soon :)."

This week saw The Wanted make their first public appearance without the 20 year-old singer, who is taking an "unforeseen hiatus" from the band to recover.

The band performed at the E! Upfronts event in New York City on Monday (22nd April), and tweeted after to say they are already missing their "boy".

The Wanted will premiere their new reality series, The Wanted Life, on E! on 2nd June.
