Olly Murs has hurt his bum playing a football match organised by Radio 1.

The singer was playing with his team, Olly Hot-Murs, against DJ Nick Grimshaw's Radio One-derers when he "pulled a cheek".

"I've pulled my right cheek in my bum so I need to go and get some physio backstage in the dressing room," he said after the game.

"I'm alright, it's just I haven't played in about six months. It was nice to get out there," he added.

The 29-year-old joked: "I'm going to speak to the insurance guy after the game and put a claim in."

The match was organised as a follow-up to July's game, where Grimmy's team lost 11-1 to the singer.

That time the breakfast DJ injured his foot and was taken to hospital, missing his morning show on the following day.

This time it went to penalties after it ended 3-3 at full time, however Radio 1 eventually lost again.

Both games were organised as part of the Football Association's 150th anniversary.

"Grimmy was brilliant," said the singer. "We got a better team today, we played at Wembley Stadium. We'll see what happens next time."

Other stars taking part included Wretch 32, Rizzle Kicks, as well as former professional footballers Alan Shearer and Peter Reid.

There were other mishaps during the game, including reality TV star Mark Wright, playing for Grimmy's team, kicking the ball into John Bishop's head.

"It really did knock me for one," said the comedian.

"I had to get up because there's no way I'm going to lie on the floor being knocked down by a lad from Essex.

"No chance an Essex boy is going to have me," he added.
