Sir Elton John was hospitalized after he suffered a fall at his villa in Nice, France, on Sunday. The 76-year-old singer was taken to the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco, where he was treated for minor injuries.
John’s spokesman said that the singer “slipped and fell at his home in the south of France” and was taken to the hospital as a “precautionary measure.” He was discharged from the hospital on Monday morning and is now back home and “resting comfortably.”
John has been spending the summer in France with his husband David Furnish and their two sons. He recently completed his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which lasted over three years and saw him perform over 300 shows around the world.
In a statement, John thanked his fans for their support and said that he was “looking forward to getting back to his normal routine.”
John’s fall is a reminder that even the most famous and successful people are not immune to accidents. It is important to be aware of your surroundings and to take steps to prevent falls, especially as you get older.
Here are some tips for preventing falls:
- Make sure your home is safe. Remove any tripping hazards, such as loose rugs or clutter. Install grab bars in the bathroom and shower.
- Wear comfortable shoes with good traction.
- Get regular exercise. Exercise can help to improve your balance and coordination.
- See your doctor regularly. Your doctor can identify any underlying conditions that may increase your risk of falls.
If you do fall, try to get up as quickly as possible. If you are unable to get up on your own, call for help.
Falls can be serious, but they can be prevented. By taking steps to make your home safe and by getting regular exercise, you can reduce your risk of falling and enjoy a safe and active lifestyle.
