Johnny Marr's upcoming live dates could be postponed after he broke his hand.

The singer and guitarist says it happened when he fell while out running in London last week.

"I was running pretty fast and just went straight over. I banged my shoulder and then realised my hand was in a bad way," he explained in a post on his website.

"Obviously we're hoping there's no long term damage. The plan is to do the Leeds Brudenell shows on the
24th and 25th of March and then the dates I have in South America as long as I can play the guitar when the plaster comes off.

"Usually that would be after six weeks but I'm hoping it will be ok, it's a bit up in the air at this point. I may have to start drinking heavily."
