Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl didn't let a suspected broken leg get in the way of showing his fans a good time.

The star injured his leg after falling off stage during a performance in Gothenburg, Sweden, but returned to the stage after being treated.

"I think I just broke my leg," Grohl told the crowd as he lay on the ground after taking a tumble just two songs into the band's set at the Ullevi stadium.

"I'm going to go to hospital. I'm going to fix my leg. And then I'm going to come back.

"You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters - we're going to come back and finish the show."

The band continued to play cover versions while Grohl sought medical attention before reappearing and playing the rest of the show with his leg bandaged.

"I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream," he said after he returned to the stage.

The band are due to play London's Wembley Stadium next weekend, and will headline Glastonbury Festival on 26 June.

Several musicians have been injured during performances this year.

U2's guitarist The Edge lived up to his name when he accidentally stepped off the side of the stage during the opening night of the band's world tour in Canada on 14 May.

In February, pop superstar Madonna was treated for whiplash after she fell offstage at the Brit Awards, and earlier this month indie singer St. Vincent fell during a concert in Knoxville, Tennessee, as she performed tracks from her self-titled fourth album.
