The Hero hitmaker was onstage in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday (30May15) when he reached out to catch a drone, which he uses to capture video footage at his shows, but the stunt went wrong as the device slashed his fingers.

He had the cuts loosely bandaged at the side of the stage, but refused to cut short the show and instead performed for another 30 minutes, with blood covering his white T-shirt, before bowing out.

Iglesias subsequently flew to Los Angeles to see a specialist and he was booked in for surgery on Monday (01Jun15).

A statement issued to Entertainment Weekly by his representative reads: "Thank you to all your concern and good wishes.

"Enrique is currently undergoing reconstructive hand surgery today... We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

The singer will have some time to recover from the injury as his next Sex and Love Tour date is not until 3 July (15) in Mexico City.
