Backstage after his trophy acceptance, the Thinking Out Loud singer told reporters he learned he'd overpaid for a term at the Academy of Contemporary Music on the red carpet and was handed $300 (£200).

He explained, "I went to ACM college for about a month when I was 18 and some dude from ACM just came up to me and told me I'd overpaid my student fee and he gave me 200 quid.

"So that was a nice surprise and now I've got 200 quid."
