The snap showed the singer with his husband, David Furnish, and their children, ten-year-old Zachary, and eight-year-old Elijah wearing personalised Versace robes as they overlooked the stunning view in Nice, France.

"Grazie mille @donatella_versace. Thank-you for your generosity and kindness. You made our Summer so glamorous. Ti amo," Sir Elton captioned the shot.
