Sam Smith was left cut and bruised after he suffered an embarrassing fall while running away from his security guard in Ibiza.
The Stay With Me singer was playing a game of hide and seek with his security guard in a market place on the Spanish island during a vacation, and he got so involved in the chase he took a tumble in front of locals, cutting his knees and bashing his head.
"I was playing hide and seek with my security guard, which I do every now and then," he tells Britain's The Sun newspaper. "We went into the Old Town and it's got a really busy market place... I did the old, 'Catch me', then ran as fast as I could and honestly, you have never seen a fall like it in your life. Into the ground, blood on my shirt, in front of everyone.
"I cut my knees and had to change my shirt. I was a mess. I came back with a really sore head and sore knees."
Sam spent the festive season with his family in England and celebrated the New Year with a message on Instagram.com. He wrote, "2015 - best year of my life to date. To all who have shared it with me.... CHEERS love you all. Wish you were all sipping espresso martinis with me."
