Ed Sheeran has been rushed to London Hospital after being hit by a car while riding his bike on Sunday (local time).

The singer-songwriter broke his right arm after he was struck, which he says "may affect some of [his] upcoming shows".

"I've had a bit of a bicycle accident and I'm currently waiting on some medical advice," the 'Shape of You' hitmaker said on Instagram.

"[It] may affect some of my upcoming shows. Please stay tuned for further news."

The 26-year-old has six shows planned for New Zealand - three in Auckland and three in Dunedin in March and April 2018.

However it's the Asian/Phillipines leg of his tour - his first stop - which is the most likely to be affected.
