US rock band The Foo Fighers have cancelled their headline slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The announcement comes after lead singer, Dave Grohl, fell off stage and broke his leg while performing in Sweden last week. The rest of their European tour including dates at London's Wembley Stadium has also been cancelled. The band announced the news on their website. Grohl said he disclocated his ankle and snapped his fibula "like an old pair of take out chopsticks." He wrote that having undergone surgery, doctors had advised him to "lay low for a while." Florence and The Machine will replace the band as the headline act on Glastonbury's Friday night line-up.
