Elton sparked cause for concern after he was pictured on a family outing to Disneyland – sitting in a wheelchair.
The entertainer was joined by husband David Furnish and their two boys – as well as bodyguards and a nanny – on the festive trip to the Anaheim theme park.
It came just a day after Elton and David were seen shopping in Beverly Hills, with Elton walking unaided out of the store.
The reason he used a wheelchair at Disneyland, however, is because he injured his ankle.
A representative for Elton said: ”He hurt his ankle but didn’t want to let his sons down by postponing their trip to Disneyland. He is on the mend now.”
The musician posted photos from Disneyland on his Instagram page, and seemed to be having a good time with his family.
