LEWIS Capaldi was all smiles as he made his first public appearance after cancelling his tour.
Singer Lewis, 26, recently revealed he was taking a break from touring for “the foreseeable future” as he struggles to come to terms with his Tourette’s.
But when he attended a pre-season football match on Sunday, he flashed a thumbs up while watching Charlton Athletic vs Aberdeen.
The Someone You Loved songster kept things casual in a black jacket and navy trousers for the London outing.
Following his performance at Glastonbury, Lewis said he was going to take a break after he struggled to sing on the Pyramid stage due to his tics.
Lewis told fans after the huge gig: “First of all, thank you to Glastonbury for having me, for singing along when I needed it and for all the amazing messages afterwards. It really does mean the world.

“The fact that this probably won't come as a surprise doesn't make it any easier to write, but I'm very sorry to let you know I'm going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future."
The singer, who was diagnosed with the syndrome last year, continued: "I used to be able to enjoy every second of show like his and I’d hoped three weeks away would sort me out.
"But the truth is I’m still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s on Saturday it became obvious that I need to spend much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time to come."
Lewis, who is being treated with Botox injections to freeze muscles to try to control the tics characteristic of Tourette’s, added: “I know I'm incredibly fortunate to be able to take some time out when others can't.
