A student was stunned to discover that his great aunt is the spitting image of Ed Sheeran.
Eduard Hromkovič, 23, was looking at a family tree when he saw the photo had a striking resemblance to the singer-songwriter, 30.
Mr Hromkovič, from Copenhagen, said: ‘I was instantly like, ‘holy s*** – that is literally Ed Sheeran!’
The 23-year-old is not in contact with his great aunt and does not know her name but believes she is in her 80s and lives near Prague.
He does not believe there are any family links to the British-born singer-songwriter- apart from his similar first name.
In the photo, he thinks that his great aunt is between 18 and 20 years old.

Mr Hromkovič said: ‘I have talked to a couple of my family members, asking them to check the picture out – and everyone [has] had a very similar reaction.
‘I instantly shared the picture [with my friends], and it became kind of a legend!
‘I really don’t think she has any idea about Ed being her doppelganger.
‘But, considering his music plays in our local radios quite a bit, I think she knows who he is.’
Reddit commenters found Mr Hromkovič’s post amusing, with one writing: ‘Shape of Eugenia’, playing on Sheeran’s hit ‘Shape Of You’. Pictured: Sheeran in the music video of ‘Shape of You’

The photo got more than 50,000 upvotes and commenters pointed out that his great aunt also looks like actor Michael Cera, 33.
