After his bicycle accident earlier this month, it will be a while before Simon Cowell (60) gets back on the electric bicycle. The jury member of ‘America’s Got Talent’, among other things, must first build it up calmly with a tricycle that he got from his colleague Howie Mandel.

Simon showed the gift on Instagram. “This just arrived at my house, thanks Howie Mandel,” the Briton writes with a photo of his new means of transport. In the basket at the back of the tricycle seems to be a balloon with a get well wish.

During a test ride with his new electric bicycle two weeks ago, Simon had a bad crash. He broke his back in several places and was operated on. He is now back home, where he is working on his recovery.
