Ed Sheeran fans have praised a comical notice board at a London Underground station aimed at thousands of people who flocked to see the star in the capital.

Lovers of the red-head descended on Greenwich’s O2 arena for the first of three consecutive shows from the Shape of You singer.

Many took to Twitter to hail a Transport for London notice board bearing a handwritten poem filled with hidden hits from the star.

The sign, addressed to “Ed Sheeran fans” read: “Even though I’m a service information board,

“Please excuse me for Thinking Out Loud;

“I really do love, the Shape of You all,

“And you seem such a wonderful crowd.

“We hope your journey was as smooth as can be,

“And you didn’t feel a single Small Bump;

“We try our best to impress, and we really must stress,

“Don’t let the Underground mice make you jump.

“The O2 Arena is just outside like a canvas Castle on the Hill;

“You have The A Team, to look after your needs,

“If you’re lost, drunk, or feeling quite ill.

“Tonight is the night, you hear Ed Sheeran live,

“As you Sing with him in the O2;

“Have fun, have a laugh, share a great photograph,

“We shall see you when you come back through.”

Impressed revellers shared images of the sign, spotted at North Greenwich station, on social media – and many spotted TfL workers who had donned Ed Sheeran masks for the occasion.

Twitter user Tabi wrote: “Saw this at North Greenwich Tube station. I’m laughing. Aww, so pumped now.”

Lara Elliot said: “Nice one North Greenwich.”

While Zosia added that the board had “made her day.”
