Seeing is believing...

Ed Sheeran is a somewhat unlikely global icon.

The unassuming ginger songwriter has enjoyed incredible, overwhelming success, a pop artist who maintains a certain magnetism amongst other artists.

New release 'No. 6 Collaborations Project' is out now, and it features everyone from Eminem and Young Thug to J Hus and Stormzy, a veritable who's who of international talent.

However that's not the only tribute that has been paid to Ed this week, with a colossal statue of the British artist appearing in Moscow’s Gorky Park.

It's an enormous - and somewhat surreal - construction, seemingly erected ahead of his appearance in Moscow this Friday (July 19th).

Here's a few photos.
