The "Hero" hitmaker sliced his fingers open after he caught a drone flying mid-air at his concert in Mexico,Tijuana, on May 30 and reconstructive surgery carried out earlier this week took longer than anticipated as it emerged during the operation that he had also fractured one of his fingers, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
A posting on the crooner's Instagram page read: "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."
Despite the injury being worse than first thought, the "Tired of being lonely" singer is still expected to make a "full recovery".
The post added: "He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated."
