Robbie Williams has been left with a cut lip after losing a fight with his computer.

The 'Party Like A Russian' singer had an accident at home while using his laptop in bed which caused the nasty gash on his face.

Robbie's wife Ayda Field took to her Instagram account to share a photo of her bloodied hubby revealing after the painful incident the 42-year-old pop star needed some ''cuddles'' to make him feel better.

The accompanying caption read: ''@robbiewilliams got into a fight with his computer and his computer won...:(

Ayda has not revealed exactly how the injury happened but perhaps Robbie's failing body was responsible for his mishap.

The 'Angels' hitmaker - who has two children, daughter Teddy, four, and son Charlton, two, with his American spouse - has previously admitted his body has been steadily deteriorating since he reached his 40s and he has ''arthritis'' in his back which has stopped him from playing football.

He said: ''I've got arthritis in my back so I can't put my foot through a ball. I have very tight hamstrings, barely existent calves, my knees are gone ... But I've got to do something to fill the time on stage.''
