Elton John treated in hospital after falling at home in France

Sir Elton John was taken to hospital after suffering a fall at his house in France.

The star, 76, was kept in hospital overnight and was discharged on Monday.

A statement from his representative said: “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 is now back at home and in good health.”

Along with his husband David Furnish and their two children, Sir Elton has been in France following the end of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in July.

He was seen on 22 August enjoying a day on his luxurious superyacht, accompanied by a gathering of A-list friends in St Tropez, south of France.

Sir Elton was also spotted having dinner with Kevin Spacey in Nice after the actor was cleared of sex attacks on four men.

The British singer-songwriter has said he might make more music but has chosen to stop doing tours so that he can spend more time with his family.

“Touring is exhausting for me now, and it takes me away from my family and my children,” he said, referring to Furnish and their two sons Zachary, 12, and Elijah, 10.

But Sir Elton did also suggest he won’t be quitting live performances for good – promising fans that “there may be the odd show” still to come.
