An Icelandic newspaper accidentally printed Ed Sheeran’s face next to an obituary.

Worry not, fans, Ed is alive and kicking and still taking the music world by storm.

But a proofing error of Icelandic newspaper Morgunbladid seemingly showed that the crooner had passed away, as his image was printed alongside the obituary of  Svavari Gunnari Sigurðsson, who was really the one to have sadly died.

Svavari Gunnari Sigurðsson died at the age of 82 and had been a mechanic who had moved to Sweden to work with Volvo.

Ed Sheeran is a 27-year-old singer from Suffolk.
