Ed Sheeran didn't realise he had fractured both his arms until the morning after his cycling accident.

The 'Castle on the Hill' hitmaker was recently forced to cancel several tour dates after being involved in an accident whilst riding his bike in London earlier this week.

But Ed has now revealed he didn't take himself to the hospital to get his injuries - which include fractures in his right wrist and left elbow - looked at until the morning after his fall, as he had originally picked himself up and cycled home.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: ''I got up and cycled home then went to bed and woke up in the morning in a lot of pain and then went to hospital. I didn't even know anything was broken until the next morning.''

Recently, the 26-year-old singer revealed he has been left unable to perform in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong as he continues to heal his wounds.

He shared on his Facebook page: ''A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future.

''Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I'm waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details. PS - Ed isn't typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.''

The 'Shape of You' singer had previously revealed he was ''waiting on some medical advice'' before making a final decision about his upcoming shows.

He shared: ''I've 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 (sic)''
