Simon Cowell (60) has an advice for everyone with an electric bicycle: read the manual first. The TV personality made an ugly fall on Saturday afternoon in which he broke his back.

“If you buy an electric bike, read the manual before getting on it”

‘Good advice …? If you buy an e-bike, read the manual before getting on it. I broke part of my back, ‘he shares on Twitter.

He also thanks the doctors and nurses who helped him. “Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I hope everyone stays safe, ‘he concludes.

The presenter underwent a six-hour operation on Saturday evening and is still recovering from it in the hospital. It may take months for him to fully recover, but for now he has only opted out of next Tuesday and Wednesday ‘s America’s Got Talent recordings.
