Sir Elton John has reassured concerned fans that he's okay after he was pictured being pushed in a wheelchair at Germany's Leipzig Airport.

Dressed in one of his trademark Gucci tracksuits and a face mask, the Rocket Man was photographed being wheeled into the airport on his way home to Nice.

He was seen getting out of the car before being pushed by a staff member and surrounded by security.



And now the 75-year-old music legend has taken to Instagram to thank fans for their concerns.

"I want to thank all my fans for reaching out to ask about my health, after the tabloids ran a silly story about my "looking frail" in a wheelchair," he wrote alongside a picture of himself on stage.

"The true story is that I’m in top health, loving my shows and playing and singing at my very best. I give 100% every night and never want to disappoint, especially after everyone has waited so long to get back to seeing shows.

"Your response to every show has been phenomenal and I’m loving every minute of it."

He continued: "After another rousing 2.5 hour show, we arrived at Leipzig airport just before curfew, to find part of the airport had closed. It was an extremely long walk to get to the plane, so my team kindly laid on a wheelchair so I could rest my hip after doing the show. That’s all folks."

We're glad you're okay Elton!
