Ouch! Olly Murs, who is currently recovering from leg surgery, unfortunately suffered another injury on stage at Newbury Racecourse on Sunday after a fan hurled a sunscreen bottle at his face
Olly was seen wearing a leg brace for the performance and said that he was trying to ‘take it easy’ before being pelted with the item.
However, he put on a brave face and concluded: ‘The gig was amazing. To be honest with you, it felt better than I thought. I was trying to be a bit cautious on stage.’
Olly nevertheless admitted he didn’t appreciate the sunscreen being thrown at him as he said on Instagram Live after the show: ‘The suncream was not a good idea half way through the gig.
‘Thanks to the person who threw it at me, my eyes are still stinging from that.’

Olly underwent surgery on his leg just 13 days ago after a fragment of bone managed to lodge itself into the back of his knee.
Last Tuesday, he took to Instagram to share his story of the freak accident, telling fans: ‘It’s been a mad 72 hours’.
Olly also admitted that he initially ‘thought the worst’ after worrying he had ‘done his knee again’. He shared a photo of two small bones that had been removed from his knee.
Wearing his hospital gown, the star thanked his fans for their support and insisted he will still perform his scheduled shows, although his performances may not be as energetic.

Olly said: ‘Hey everyone, what’s happening. You’re probably thinking, “what is going on? Why is Olly in a hospital bed?” Well, I’ve just had surgery on my left leg, and as you can see, I’ve got my game on already to ice it.
‘Basically, for some of you who came to my Newmarket gig on Friday, thank you firstly for your kind messages and support and checking I was OK.
‘It’s been a mad 72 hours since the gig getting to this point. Basically, after my second song, a fragment of bone which was in my knee managed to lodge itself to the back of my knee after I jumped and basically shut my leg down.’
‘During the gig, I was just limping the whole time, I couldn’t believe it. So basically I’m in, I’ve had the surgery, I wanted to get this done because I’ve got the Newby gig on the 14th and the Singleton Park on the 15th.
‘So I wanted to make sure I got this done for you guys. It will be a different gig, I probably won’t be running around like I normally do, there might be a stool for me to sit down on, but I can’t cancel these gigs for you guys.
‘It was such an amazing vibe on Friday at Newmarket so I’ll give it absolutely everything next week for you all.’
