Sir Paul McCartney suffered a bruised ego when he slipped and fell onstage during a show in Brazil last weekend.
The Beatles legend took to the stage on Sunday to play for 67,000 fans at the Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo, performing some of his most popular hits.

Wrapping up his set, McCartney and his band took their bows – but as the star headed for the wings, he tripped and fell over cables at the side of the stage.

The slip was caught on camera and projected on to the stadium’s big screen, leaving the audience aghast, but the 68 year old refused to stay down and bounced to his feet to continue his exit.
