Ed Sheeran Mistakenly Reported as 82-Year-Old Dead Guy in Icelandic Newspaper

Ed Sheeran fans will be relieved to know that the ginger-haired troubadour isn’t dead, nor is he an 82-year-old mechanic named Svavar Gunnar Sigursson though an Icelandic newspaper reported otherwise earlier today.

Sheeran’s instantly recognizable photograph appeared in the obituaries section Iceland’s Morgunblai this morning, next to a textual tribute to the real Sigursson prompting some fans to momentarily worry that the UK pop star had passed away.

It was quickly identified as a mistake, however, and fans are now having a field day with it on Twitter. See some the reactions below.

It’s not Sheeran’s first near-death experience in Iceland, either. The dude yes, the real Ed Sheeran stepped into a geyser and boiled his foot on a trip to Iceland last year.
