Earlier in the day, Sting appeared on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show to launch his new single If It’s Love on BBC Radio 2.

He told the host: ‘I’ve always wanted to write a song with a whistle in it.

I’ll tell you why.  

‘When we first had a hit in 1979 with The Police, we had Roxanne in the charts. We played Stoke Town Hall, and I was sleeping in, and the window cleaner was outside whistling my song and i thought, this is what I want.

‘I want lorry drivers, taxi drivers, window cleaners, milkmen whistling my song.

So this is the first attempt after 40 years to write a whistling song.’

Speaking about the new single, the singer added: ‘I’m certainly not the first songwriter to equate falling in or out of love with an incurable sickness, nor will I be the last. 

‘If It’s Love is my addition to that canon where the tropes of metaphorical symptoms, diagnosis, and downright incapacity are all familiar enough to make each of us smile ruefully.’

When in Venice: The Venice Film Festival starts on Wednesday and runs until the 11th September

Sting and Trudie have been married for nearly 30 years and have four children together.

They spend a lot of time in Italy – and were seen enjoying an evening in their Tuscan countryside vineyard in early June. 

The breathtaking setting in their south of Florence home is now a fully functioning organic farm and vineyard.

The couple ferment and bottle their own wines on the vineyards of Il Palagio, using organic farming methods.

So far, they have replanted 11 hectares of vineyards since 2000, which have resulted in four reds wine.

Keeping it casual: Their daughter wore a navy blue ensemble teamed with a green zigzag print bag 

The wines they produce are beautifully named Message in a Bottle, Casino delle Vie, Sister Moon and When We Dance.

There is also a shop on the estate offering products including olive oil and honey. 

The picturesque grounds are opened up for weddings and private parties with six cottages that can house 50 guests.

Up to 200 partygoers can enjoy the 900-acre Italian estate’s attractions which include a large swimming pool, a giant chess board in the garden, bee hives and its own, woods, lake and kitchen garden. Guests can dine in the wine cellar which is lined with enormous ancient barrels.
