Ed Sheeran becomes the unlucky victim of one of the biggest fan photo fails of all time.

Taking a selfie with British pop megastar Ed Sheeran is about as thrilling as it could get for many of us.

But one fan’s cheeky snap was made “10 times more exciting” by something as simple as the weather.

Talia Calandra was smiling next to the 26-year-old when an unfortunately-timed gust of wind resulted in a hilarious snap.

The selfie struck a chord with social media users and has been liked more than 130,000 times, retweeted more than 48,000 times and seen by more than two million people since it was uploaded on 8 March.

Calandra, who watched Sheeran perform at an iHeart Radio concert in New York, took another selfie with the star.

The pop music fan, who has also met singers Joe Jonas and One Direction’s Niall Horan, went with a filter this time.
