NEW YORK (AP) — A statement on Enrique Iglesias' website said his reconstructive hand surgery "lasted longer than expected" because he suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected.

Iglesias had surgery in Los Angeles on Monday after slicing his fingers when grabbing a drone at a recent concert.

The statement posted Tuesday said "the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed" but a full recovery is expected.

The 40-year-old singer sliced his fingers at a show in Tijuana, Mexico. He was treated at the venue and was advised to stop the show, but he performed for an additional 30 minutes. Video and photos posted online highlighted his bandaged hand and blooded T-shirt.

Iglesias will spend the next few weeks recovering.
