The 42-year-old’s wife Ayda Field shared Robbie's technology mishap on her Instagram page on Monday night (23Jan17).

Actress and presenter Ayda, 37, posted a picture of Robbie sporting a nasty looking gash stretching from his top lip across his right cheek, which she captioned, "got into a fight with his computer and his computer won...:("

She further teased her other half with the hashtags "#technologyproblems", "#poorguy" and “#slightk**bhead".

In an interview with London's Evening Standard newspaper last year, the Rock DJ singer revealed he was battling the effects of arthritis, and that the joint condition had forced him to give up playing football.

In 2015, he also revealed he was suffering from back problems but battled through the pain on tour.

"I'm here now. I'm soberish. I'm 41 years old. The back is knackered, the knees are gone, the groin's gone but I'm still here to entertain," he told New Zealand newspaper Taranaki Daily News.

However the star, who has in the past opened up about his problems with depression, anxiety and substance abuse, feels he is in a better place mentally due to his relationship with Ayda, with whom he has two children, Theodora, 4, and Charlton, 2.

"Life is good," he told The Sun late last year. "My wife Ayda is a beautiful person and she makes me laugh and my kids are both happy children. We are all in love."
