The singer chats to Capital FM after winning an award for his song 'The A Team'.

Ed Sheeran has said he feels "emotional" after winning one of this year's Ivor Novello Awards.

The singer was presented with the Best Song Musically And Lyrically for 'The A Team' by David Gray.

Speaking to Capital FM about his win, Ed said: "I'm happy. I'm a bit emotional to be honest. It's the one award you always dream about as a songwriter so to get it first time round off someone that I started music listening to, it's sweet."

Adele, who won two awards - PRS For Music Most Performed Work award for 'Rolling In The Deep' and Songwriter Of The Year - had also been tipped to win Ed's prize, but missed out.

Asked about Adele's wins Ed replied: "Adele's phenomenal. I think everyone was expecting her to get this one so I'm honoured to have it."

Other winners included Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games', which won Best Contemporary Song', while Take That were presented with the PRS For Music Outstanding Contribution To British Music.

Spandau Ballet's Gary Kemp was presented with the Outstanding Song Collection at the awards ceremony, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
