WATCH: Lionel Richie tweets hilarious mash-up of both his and Adele's 'Hello'

Lionel Richie has responded to the release of Adele's new song, 'Hello', which bears the same title and opening lyric as his 1984 hit.
Clearly the legendary artist has a sense of humour as he initially posted images of himself and Adele on phones to Instagram with the comment, "HELLO @Adele is it me you're looking for... #hello"
He then tweeted a link to a YouTube mash-up of his song with Adele's which sees him asking, "Hello, is it me you're looking for?" at which point Adele hangs up on him and we're left with just a dial tone.
Adele addressed the similarities in the two songs last week, saying, "Me and Lionel, we definitely have got to do something. Lionel, I'm putting it out there."
It looks like Lionel may be open to the idea!
