Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson has injured his leg after landing awkwardly when he jumped off the stage where he was performing in Portugal earlier this week.

Wilson will now be forced to play his upcoming dates, including V Festival, in a cast after tearing his ankle ligaments.

According to NME.com, a spokesperson for the band said: "Ricky Wilson has torn his ankle ligaments jumping off a stage at Parades De Coura Festival, Portugal."

"It's a repeat of the injury Ricky suffered in March this year on the band's US dates," the spokesperson said.

"All shows planned for this weekend, Lowlands, Pukkelpop and V Festival will go ahead, but Ricky will be less mobile than usual and won't be climbing any lighting rigs. Any rumours of cancellations are not true - Kaiser Chiefs will perform as planned across this weekend."
