As people around the world celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday, Rod Stewart took some time out of his day to pay tribute to all the incredible mums out there.

Singing from inside his conservatory, the 75-year-old musician served up a stunning a cappella performance of his 1988 hit 'Forever Young'.

Introducing himself, Stewart said: "I'm going to sing a song for all the mothers all around the world on this Mother’s Day."

He then added "two little apologies. One, my hair is very long, I haven't had it cut for three months. This is about as long as I've had it since the '70s. And the other apology is that I obviously haven't got a band with me. So I'm going to sing 'Forever Young' all on my ownsome."

And we are loving the stripped-back version!
