Cycling accidents can happen to anyone

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was involved in a nasty accident on his bicycle after reportedly struck by a car at the weekend.

"A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow," he said on Instagram, alongside a picture of his arm in a cast.

"I'm waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that," the star said. "Please stay tuned for more details."

The worldwide pop sensation was out riding on his bike when he was hit by the car, fracturing his wrist and elbow. This has now forced him to cancel several dates on his international tour.
