Imagine the shock that poor Icelandic Ed Sheeran fans faced when they opened up their local newspaper to see Ed's face next to an obituary. 

Yup, Icelandic newspaper Morgunbladid made a massive gaffe when they printed an image 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. 

But we can assure you that Ed is not dead (hey that rhymes!) and is instead probably off somewhere writing yet another hit song.
