Enrique soldiered on

The statement, posted on his official website, 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. - Team Enrique

Despite the seriousness of his injury, Enrique continued performing for 30 minutes after the accident took place.

Immediately after the concert, which took place in Tijuana, Mexico, he was taken to LA on an air ambulance.

He is currently in the middle of his ‘Sex And Love’ tour, and he is expected to resume performing on 3 July, in Mexico City.
