The incident reportedly happened this morning when Ed was cycling down a street in London.

Sharing a photo of his arm in a cast on Instagram, Ed wrote: “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”

The singer was quickly inundated with well-wishes from concerned fans, with one writing: “Hope nothing too serious. Wishing you a safe recovery.”

Ed is due to play a host of Asian tour dates in the next couple of weeks, but there is a chance his broken arm may leave him unable to perform – forcing him to cancel the shows.
