The 'Kickstarts' rapper admits he will aim to reschedule the planned shows as soon as possible.

Example has announced that he has been forced to postpone all of his live touring duties this month due to his leg injury.

The 'Stay Awake' star had to postpone a series of shows back in September, and has now been told by doctors that his achilles tendonitis has "got worse" and he needs more time to recover.

Taking to his Twitter account today (2nd October), the rapper apologised to his fans and promised to reschedule the shows as soon as possible.

"With huge regret I've had to cancel/reschedule all my Oct shows. My achilles tendinitis has got worse and I need time to recover...," he tweeted, before adding: "Hoping to be back to full fitness asap and in time to play my November/December shows. Details of the rescheduled shows soon."

Those gigs affected include his show at the Hatfield Forum at the University Of Hertfordshire and shows in Africa and Australia.
