LONDON (Reuters) - Famed opera tenor Luciano Pavarotti said Wednesday he would love to sing a duet with 'Queen of Pop" Madonna.

"That is my dream," he said, clutching a heart-shaped box of chocolates to his ample frame at a St. Valentine's Day news conference in London.

At 65, Pavarotti is still far from contemplating retirement. But he did predict he would not sing for as long as his 88-year-old father, Fernando, who is still in fine voice.

And he was in contrite form too, admitting he had put on 25 pounds when he was meant to be on yet another diet.

Asked if he would like to sing with Madonna, he said: "It is my hope. Madonna has a very clear idea. She promised me to come if we could sing together 'Caro Mio Bene" (My Dear One)."
