Ed Sheeran hits No.1 on iTunes in 65 countries with new album x

Ed Sheeran has topped the iTunes sales chart in 65 countries with his new album x.

The singer's second studio collection - pronounced 'multiply' - was released earlier this week and has reached the top spot on digital stores in the UK, US, Australia and Germany.

Sheeran has also reached number one on iTunes stores in Denmark, France, Mexico, Italy, Egypt, Israel, Brazil, Portugal, Spain and South Africa.

The new album features his hit single 'Sing', along with new tracks 'Don't', 'One' and 'I'm A Mess'.

Sheeran dominated the UK iTunes songs chart last week after releasing a new track everyday in the run-up to his new album. At one point he occupied eight spots on the Top 10 best-selling songs chart.

The star will play the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this weekend (Sunday, June 29), three years after performing on the BBC Introducing Stage at the festival back in 2011.

Never really liked Finster for some reason, but his album is pretty good
