U2 frontman Bono stepped out in Dublin over the weekend for the first time since he had an operation on his arm.

The singer underwent surgery after he fell off of a bike in New York last month.

He held his arm under a heavy black jacket as he tried to protect the injury from the cold on Grafton Street on Saturday.

The fall resulted in three fractures to his left shoulder blade, a fractured little finger and a break to his funny bone that saw the bone fracture in six places and tear through his skin.

In total, he needed three metal plates and 18 screws inserted during the lengthy operation.

Bono was forced to miss the band's performance at a World Aids Day benefit concert in Times Square, New York, earlier this month.
