Dead Sheeran? Superstar Ed accidentally killed off in Icelandic mechanic’s obituary

THE singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was mistakenly killed off yesterday by a newspaper in Iceland – thanks to a slip-up with its obituary of a mechanic.

The daily publication Morgunbladid, which has its headquarters in Reykjavik and a circulation of some 30,000, accidentally ran the picture of the chart-dominating 26-year-old musician and record producer as part of its report about the death of 82-year-old Svavar Gunnar Sigurdsson, who was a mechanic for Volvo.

 


Sigurdsson also reportedly performed part-time as a Sheeran tribute act, which is what is believed to have led to the error.

A 26-year-old and an 82-year-old. Yes, we can see how the confusion over pictures could arise…
