James Arthur has posted a picture of himself with a cut face after what he says was a fight in a Polish bar.

The former X Factor winner posted the image, which you can see above, with the caption "Polish bar brawls are the best".

He then wrote: "You should see the other guys (plural)" and joked that he received tips from boxer Carl Froch.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, he later wrote "I'm absolutely fine and in good health just a couple bumps and scratches in a scuffle. Boys will be boys."

Earlier this month, the singer confirmed that he is no longer signed to Simon Cowell's Syco label. Arthur joined the label following his X Factor win in 2012 and released his debut album, 'James Arthur', last year. But, in a career dotted with controversy, Arthur had persistently faced rumours that his relationship with the company was fractured.

Syco stood by Arthur following controversies over his use of homophobic lyrics in an off-the-cuff rap track and even when he compared his professional situation to that of a captive killer whale. In April, Arthur said, "As far as I know I am still with Syco," after releasing a track that included the line, "I'm gonna blow up your family like I'm a terrorist".

However, earlier this month (June 11), Arthur confirmed that he had departed from the Sony imprint. Breaking the news over Twitter, he wrote: "Just to clear things up – I am no longer with Syco. I would like to thank all at the label for making a great record with me."
