America’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell is recovering after crashing his electric bicycle for the second time in 18 months.

The 62-year-old was briefly hospitalized in London last week after he broke his arm when he fell off his bike, according to PEOPLE.

“He fell off his bike and broke his arm. He’s absolutely fine,” a source told PEOPLE.

TMZ reports that Cowell was riding the bike in London on Thursday when he turned a sharp corner on a wet road. The bike’s tires slipped, causing Cowell to crash. Sources reported to the outlet that Simon broke his arm, badly bruised his cheek and possibly suffered a concussion.

Simon was treated and released the same day and is currently at home recovering.

In August 2020, Simon crashed his electric bike at his Malibu, California, home and broke his back in three places. Reps for Cowell told PEOPLE at the time that “Simon had surgery overnight and is doing okay this morning. It was a five-hour surgery and he has had to have a number of fusions and metal rod put into his back. He landed on his back when he fell from the bike. The injuries are bad but he’s also been told he was lucky.”
