Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You' Video: See the Singer as a Sumo Wrestler

Ed Sheeran channels his inner Rocky Balboa in the new video for "Shape of You," the latest single off the upcoming ÷ (Divide) album. Directed by Jason Koenig, the U.K. star transforms into a boxer who trains alongside his girlfriend (played by Fresh Pair actress Jennie Pegouskie) who also likes to throw punches.

Watch above as the heavily-tattooed Sheeran shows off his fit body, step into the ring, run through Seattle with his lover and eat a plateful of delicious looking fried chicken. Stayed tuned for the end, where the video turns silly as the singer puts on a fat suit to take on a sumo wrestler. 

"Shape of You" comes after Sheeran's nostalgic "Castle on the Hill" video, which dropped last week. Fans can look out for the artist's forthcoming Divide album on March 3. Before then, check out the full tracklist here and throw it back to Ed Sheeran's interview with Fuse below:
