Legendary Elton John was recently rushed to hospital after suffering a fall at his villa in France via The Sun,
The 76-year-old veteran star is reportedly to have undergone a brain scan after he was taken to the orthopaedic department of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco. The Rocket Man singer was then treated for minor injuries.
Elton suffered the fall at his villa in Nice while on holiday with his husband David Furnish and their two sons. A representative for Elton John said that he was discharged this morning and is now back at home in good health.
“We can confirm that following a slip yesterday at his home in the south of France, Elton visited the local hospital as a precautionary measure.
“Following check ups, he was immediately discharged this morning and his now back at home and in good health.”
It is noted that he was only slightly injured and underwent a brain and lumbar scan, which revealed he had not suffered any fractures.
Elton was enjoying his summer holidays in sunny France after wrapping up his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour last month. The 330-show, five-year tour grossed £720.11million, which is the equivalent to £2.18million per show or about £16,000 a minute.
While Elton hasn’t ruled out releasing new music in the future, he’s decided to retire from touring to spend more time with David and their kids. However, Elton added that he hasn’t given up performing for good and will likely still play “the odd show” every now and then.
