Ed Sheeran says he has tested positive for COVID-19, but will continue to perform and carry out interviews from home.
The singer announced the news in a video on Instagram, saying: "Hey guys. Quick note to tell you that I've sadly tested positive for Covid, so I'm now self-isolating and following government guidelines.
"It means that I'm now unable to plough ahead with any in person commitments for now, so I'll be doing as many of my planned interviews/performances I can from my house.
"Apologies to anyone I've let down. Be safe everyone."
Sheeran's positive test comes less than a week before the release of his fifth album.
Equals, which includes UK number one singles Shivers and Bad Habits, will be out on Friday.
Last week, Sheeran performed in London as part of the inaugural Earthshot Prize awards, hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
âNext week, Sheeran is due to join Apple Music's Zane Lowe live to play new songs from his album and take questions from fans.
