Ed Sheeran is on the way to becoming as well- known for his facial injury stories as he is for his best-selling guitar ballads.

Following that royal knighting-gone-wrong incident in which he sustained a scar on his face, the 'Shape of You' singer has revealed another tale of face-related pain.

Though this time, he was dishing the blows out himself, to none other than Justin Bieber, with whom he penned one of the past year's biggest hits 'Love Yourself'.

"We were in Japan," the star told The Guardian. "We'd been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered.

"Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, 'F**k, I need to aim this properly,' and I swung.

"And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like [horrified expression]."

He admitted: "I'd cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those 'What the f**k?' moments."

While he's not been ruining Justin's face, Ed has been ruining Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp's leg by tattooing the wrong year.

Honestly, this guy is a hazard!

Ed Sheeran is due to release his third studio album ÷ tomorrow (March 3).
