Popstar Ed Sheeran has been involved in a car accident while out on his bike.

The 'Shape of You' singer has revealed on his Instagram that he broke his arm in the collision, but is now recovering.

He said: "I've had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows. Please stay tuned for further news. Ed x".

Ed is scheduled to head out on an Asian tour from October 22, and it remains to be seen whether his apparent injury will have any significant impact.
