Some good advice…If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time,” Simon tweeted. “I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages.”

The day before, it was reported that Simon was rushed to the hospital after falling off of his electric bike.

Simon then had to undergo a six-hour surgery after breaking his back in multiple places. Surgeons had to fuse his bones and implant a rod during the operation.

Simon will have to sit out of at least two live AGT episodes as he recovers.

We hope Simon Cowell has a speedy recovery!
