Elton John was hospitalised on Sunday night after suffering a fall at his villa in Nice.
The music legend, 76, was taken to the orthopedic department of the Princess Grace hospital center in Monaco where he was checked over.
A representative for Elton confirmed to MailOnline that he was discharged on Monday morning and is now back at home in ‘good health.’
In a statement they 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 his now back at home and in good health.’
A source in Nice said: ‘He had a small domestic accident at his villa in Mont-Boron.
‘He was hospitalised in the orthopaedic department of the Princess Grace Hospital, but was only slightly injured.
‘He had a brain scan and a lumbar scan, which revealed no fractures.’
Elton has been spending the summer in France with his husband David Furnish and their two sons after wrapping up his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in July.
He was last seen enjoying a relaxing day on his superyacht with a host of A-List pals in St Tropez on August 22.
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.
He said: ‘Touring is exhausting for me now, and it takes me away from my family and my children.’
However, Elton added that he hasn’t given up performing for good and will likely still play ‘the odd show’ every now and then.
