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 Siguršsson — though an Icelandic newspaper reported otherwise earlier today.
 
Sheeran’s instantly recognizable photograph appeared in the obituaries section Iceland’s Morgunblašiš this morning, next to a textual tribute to the real Siguršsson — 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.
