Example forced to pull plug on gigs

Example has had to pull out of some gigs because of tendonitis

Example has said he's been forced to cancel gigs on doctor's orders.

The rapper, who has tendonitis of the Achilles and calf muscles, tweeted a picture of himself with a brace on his foot.

He told his fans: "Today I was told I need to apply an ice pack to my Achilles six times a day for 20 mins a time, every day for 14 days. Imagine the excitement!"

He added: "I'm lying on my front with bags of frozen peas on my legs. That's me for most of the day."

Example later tweeted a picture of a brace on his foot, saying: "This is me all day every day for the next few weeks."

He then told his fans: "Have had to cancel a few gigs over the next few weeks. I can barely walk."

He joked: "I wish I could do my shows sat on a throne like Jessie J did but hey - Nobody's Perfect.

"My shows rely on a lot of energy and bouncing around like a lunatic which I can't do at the moment. Doctors have told me to rest."

According to reports, no UK dates have so far been affected.

Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
