Harry Styles was floored during One Direction's show in Glasgow, Scotland on Tuesday after he was hit in the groin with a shoe.

The five-piece performed for fans at the city's Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, and they paused the gig part-way through to answer questions from fans.

One enthusiastic audience member threw a shoe onto the stage, and as Styles held it, he was hit in the crotch by another piece of footwear.

The star fell to the floor and as he attempted to regain his composure, bandmate Liam Payne told the crowd, "Well, he has just been assaulted."
