Example has cancelled his October gigs due to a case of Achilles tendinitis

Example has been forced to pull out of his October gig dates.

The rapper and singer has been suffering with Achilles tendinitis - a condition which causes pain on the back of the leg - causing him to cancel his commitments for the month, although they will be rescheduled.

In a series of posts on twitter, he said: "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... Hoping to be back to full fitness asap and in time to play November/December shows. Details of the rescheduled shows soon (sic)"

Example recently revealed he had only just started taking singing lessons to make sure his voice was in top condition.

He said: "I've released three albums and about 15 [UK] Top 40 singles, so my manager went, 'Do you think we maybe should have a singing lesson now?'

"But the vocal coach said to me: 'You've got a really unique voice. I don't want you to lose the sound you've got.'

"So she taught me to warm up, basically, so I don't lose my voice."
