Elton John has ended up in a wheelchair after injuring himself, but he won’t let that stop him from seeing some of the world’s top sights.

Looking glum and down in the dumps, one of the world’s most successful entertainers, Sir Elton John has ended up wheelchair-bound after spraining his ankle, whilst visiting Italy.

The “Candle In The Wind” singer took to Instagram uploading a picture of him, in a trademark tracksuit, looking down in the dumps, sitting in a wheelchair. The singer was quick to let his loyal fans know that his injury wasn’t too bad.

However, he said that despite having sprained his ankle, that he wouldn’t let that spoil his fun, saying “Not even a sprained ankle could keep me away from seeing one of the most beautiful museums in the world”. He was visiting the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.



A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
