Enrique Iglesias is said to be recovering following surgery undertaken to treat his recently injured hand.
The singer sliced open his hand during a concert at Plaza de Toros de Playas in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday night (May 30), proceeding to complete the show despite his injuries. The incident occurred when Iglesias grabbed a camera drone to show the audience his point of view. Video footage shows him flinching before throwing the drone on to the stage with a bloodied hand, which he then used to draw a heart on his T-shirt.

A representative for the singer previously said that he was “semi-treated” from side-of-stage. However, a statement posted to the pop star’s official website describes the injuries as “a bit worse” than originally thought, leading to Iglesias undergoing “reconstructive surgery”.
The full statement reads: “We wanted to give you a personal update about his condition. His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed. He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery. He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated.”
