Enrique Iglesias being treated for onstage injury

Enrique Iglesias performed for 30 minutes covered in blood last night (30.05.15), after injuring himself onstage.

The 40-year-old singer sliced open two of his fingers as he attempted to grab a drone - which he sometimes uses to show the audience a point of view angle - during a performance at the Bull Fight Ring in Tijuana, Mexico, leaving his white t-shirt stained with blood, but he carried on for half an hour despite being advised to end the show.

Enrique's rep Joe Bonilla said on Instagram: "Last night Enrique had a show at a bullfight ring in Tijuana, Mexico for 12k+ people as part of his #SexandLove world tour. During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot.

"Something went wrong and he had an accident. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding. He was advised to stop the show.He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show."

The 'Hero' hitmaker's rep went on to thank fans for their "love and concern" and revealed that Enrique was met by an ambulance at the nearby airport after his show, and is now seeing a specialist in Los Angeles.

Joe added: "He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there. He was then put on a plane to LA where we was then put on a plane to see a specialist. We will continue to update as we have more info. Thank you all for your love and concern."
