America's Got Talent star Sofia Vergara previously shared the extent of the music mogul's injuries after posting a snap of herself alongside Simon, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, where Simon wore a black wrist cast. Despite still suffering with his wrist, Simon appears in good spirits, pulling a thumbs up pose to the camera, before sitting back into the plush sofa beside his colleagues and smiling contentedly at Heidi Klum.

This isn't the first time that Simon has been in a bike crash, as he fell off his bike in Malibu back in 2020. Speaking to The Sun about the impact his e-bike injuries had, he said: "I considered therapy for the first time when I broke my back because I was very, very, very, low. I felt very depressed because I didn't know how to explain it to Eric. I couldn't do all the things I wanted to with him. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to walk again, to ever play football with him."
