Sir Elton John was treated in hospital over the weekend following a fall at his villa.
The 'Rocket Man' singer has since been discharged after spending the night at the Princess Grace in Monaco.
A representative for the 76-year-old later told press that he is in 'good health' following the incident.
In the days leading up to the fall, Sir Elton had last been seen on his superyacht enjoying some well-earned downtime after his historic Glastonbury set.
The 'Yellow Brick Road' singer had then travelled to Nice and stayed at his villa before the sudden fall.
While in hospital, the 76-year-old was treated by the orthopaedic department before being discharged on Monday morning (August 28).
Having returned home to the South of France, his representative told the MailOnline that the singer was in 'good health'.
Their statement read: "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."
His fall comes after the star recently retired from touring, with the singer thanking fans for '52 years of joy' during his final concert.
During his incredible 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour, the 76-year-old performed 330 shows and grossed an insane £745 million ($939.1m) for the sell-out shows.
Amid the non-stop performances, Sir Elton played the iconic Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury music festival.
Having closed the festival in late June, he went on to tour for another month before his final performance on July 9.
Closing his final concert in Stockholm, Sweden, he told the audience: “I’ve had the most wonderful career, beyond belief. 52 years of pure joy playing music, how lucky am I to play music?
“But, ya know, I wouldn’t be sitting here and talking to you if it wasn’t for you. You bought the singles, the albums, the CDs, the cassettes, but more importantly, you bought the tickets to the shows and you know how I love to play live.”
The five-time Grammy winner then played two of his most iconic tracks, 'Your Song' and 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'.
Though he's not ruled out more releases, the musician has opted to retire from touring to be with his kids and husband David Furnish.
