Ed Sheeran Cancels Tour Dates After Being Struck by Car, Breaking Arm

ORIGINAL POST (10/16): Ed Sheeran is recovering after he was hit by a car while biking, leaving him with a broken arm.
The "Shape of You" singer was riding his bike in London when the accident occurred, reports the Mirror. It's not exactly clear when he was struck, but he did share a photo of his arm on Instagram on Monday morning (Oct. 16).
"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," he wrote with the image above.
Ed is a right-handed guitarist, so, obviously, this injury could spell temporary disaster for performances. The next stop on his tour is set for October 22 in Taipei, followed by a string of shows in Asia. He was then slated to take a breather before hitting the road once more in Australia next March, reports Billboard.
