Ed Sheeran has confirmed that he had been knocked down by a car in London
The 26-year-old was riding his bike when he was struck down by a vehicle causing his right arm to break, which may well put his upcoming tour plans in jeopardy.
“I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident,” wrote the star on his Instagram page, posting a picture of his arm in a cast.
“I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows. Please stay tuned for further news.”
Ed is due to fly to Asia this week ahead of a tour, but his injury could throw those concerts into doubt.
Fans in Taipei face an anxious wait to find out whether he will play at Nangang Exhibition Hall on Sunday night.
Ed plays the guitar right-handed, so as his right arm is in a plaster cast, and as he is a solo performer he may struggle to play the guitar for his fans,
In an interview with BBC News earlier this year, he said he would never consider playing with a backing band.
“I don’t feel like there’s anything interesting or new about seeing a singer-songwriter with a band behind them, I don’t feel like if I suddenly got a band, everyone would go, ‘Wow!’. I actually feel it’d take away from me.” he said
His last dates for 2017 are penned in for November 19 in Mumbai, India, and November 23 in Dubai.
Fans took to Twitter to send Ed their get well soon wishes;
Ed Sheeran reportedly involved in a traffic accident.
Hopefully just a Small Bump.
