Ed Sheeran hit by car in London, singer rushed to hospital

Ed Sheeran has been knocked down by a car while riding his bicycle in London, according to reports. The Barcelona singer was reportedly rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.



Sheeran has apparently broken his arms, say pals, which may put a halt to his Asian tour.

UPDATE: The British singer took to Instagram to confirm the news. He has posted a photo of his broken arm.

In the caption he wrote, "Ive 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"
