The 31-year-old pop artist felt drinking after a gig was an “excuse” used by alcoholics, but now he “had to have” half a bottle of wine to unwind.

I always was like, ‘Oh, I guess it’s just an excuse to think that the adrenaline is so big that I have to have 40 beers. ‘So if I finish a gig, I have to have like half a bottle to a bottle of wine when I’m winding down and a steak or a bit of chicken or something afterwards,” says Sheeran.
The ‘Shivers’ hitmaker, who has “never been” an exerciser before, is now on his ‘+-=x’ world tour and has started a marathon-style training regimen in preparation for the shows.
