British pop star Olly Murs suffered a nasty sporting injury after he was hit in the face during an energetic soccer game.

The Heart Skips A Beat hitmaker is a keen athlete and regularly takes part in charity soccer matches, but was left with a bloody face during a recent match when a fellow player accidentally struck him.

The singer took to on Friday (18Apr14) to joke about the mishap and appears to blame his friend Ricky Finnigan for the injury, revealing he is worried he might have a broken nose.

He writes, "Oi @rickyfinnigan my nose is bleeding now...After your swinging elbows at footy!! Think my nose is broken."

Murs later told Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "My nose is bleeding quite a lot after someone swung elbows during football. I think my nose could actually be broken, it's definitely really bad."
