The Grammy award winning singer halted his Saturday night set in Cardiff because he "needed a pee" after performing his smash hit Galway Girl.

Then three songs later Sheeran stopped in the middle of singing Photograph, saying "I'm so sorry Cardiff" before running off to the toilet again.

The 60,000 Principality Stadium crowd cheered when he returned to the stage.

The 27-year-old then continued singing where he left off.

On returning following his first trip to the toilet he told the crowd: "I've been gigging since I was 14 and I've never done that.

"And now I do it in front of 60,000 people"

The Saturday show in Cardiff was the penultimate gig of the UK leg of his bumper Divide world tour before it returns to mainland Europe and Amsterdam on Thursday.

It was also the third night of Sheeran's record-breaking mini-residency at the Principality Stadium, being the first artist to have four successive nights at the Cardiff arena.

Plan ahead

Fans travelling to and from Sheeran's final night in Cardiff on Sunday have been advised to plan ahead as the only trains running after it finishes at 22:30 BST are to Swansea and Hereford via Newport.

Security to the concert is tight - only small bags are allowed in the stadium while laptops, selfie sticks and umbrellas are banned.

Cardiff buses are being diverted out of city centre bus stops while operators have warned train services in the Cardiff area will be busy all day.
