Ed Sheeran has finally been announced as a headliner of Glastonbury Festival 2017.
It is the latest accolade in a year of phenomenal successes for the Suffolk singer, who recently broke United Kingdom chart history with the release of his third album ÷ (Divide).
Their comments came after the singer said: 'Hello from Ed Sheeran, we're starting the tour off today and I want to make an announcement.
The chart-dominating pop star will close the event on Sunday, 25 June, in his only festival appearance this year.
In an Instagram clip, Sheeran confirmed that he is "headlining Glastonbury on the Sunday night, which is awesome".

However, he managed to find his way back to Old Trafford, unlike numerous others who have left. Soslan Dzhanaev could return in goal but Vladimir Granat is unlikely to be available.
Radiohead are the Friday night headliners, making their first United Kingdom festival appearance since 2011, with Foo Fighters heading up the Saturday night slot.
His first appearance was in 2011 on the Croissant Neuf stage, as well as the BBC Introducing Stage, ahead of the release of his debut album.
Tickets for the 2017 Glastonbury event in Somerset have already sold out.
Sheeran returned in 2014 with an early-evening set on the Pyramid Stage.
It's been the worst kept secret in British music for some time now, but Ed Sheeran is absolutely, definitely playing this summer's Glastonbury.
