Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil was injured onstage at Glastonbury tonight (June 26).

The Scottish trio were the surprise special guests on The Park stage, and with news of their performance having leaked out, they were watched by one of the weekend's biggest crowds.

However, at the end of a triumphant rendition of 'The Captain', the frontman jumped off a speaker and landed awkwardly. He was seen my medics straight after, and despite fears, it was merely a sprain. The band have continued their touring schedule as normal.

The show had gone well up until then, with an orange-trousered Neil leading the band through an ecstatic run-through of some of their biggest songs.

Biffy Clyro played:

'That Golden Rule'
'Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies'
'Glitter And Trauma'
'Who's Got A Match?'
'Many Of Horror'
'The Captain'

NME will be coming live from Glastonbury throughout the weekend. Head to NME.COM/glastonbury for the latest festival news.
