"details of my broken leg have been greatly exaggerated..."

... Is what Mark Twain might have said, had he read the various newspaper and online reports this morning, of the band's secret show at Glastonbury yesterday.

Simon, during the last song, climbed on top of his amplifiers, and jumped off, landing quite awkwardly on his leg, and twisting his knee in what turned out to be very much the wrong direction.

Immediately after the show, he was examined by a series of doctors, paramedics, and informed third parties, and Si then spent most of the rest of his evening with his knee wrapped up, initially by the old-school method, a bag of frozen peas, and then moving on to a more sophisticated ice-pack.

He was in much better shape this morning, and has been up and about for a while now without the crutches, that were kindly donated last night. The band have just come offstage in Luxembourg, and he, if you excuse the in-joke/pun, made it through with aplomb.

We're off to watch the football now. We think it'll be 3-1. Though i won't say to which team.

very best from the sunniest field in Luxembourg...

tour manager Neil.
