Bruce Springsteen is officially the nicest man on the planet.

Chart-topper Adele was performing in Lisbon at the weekend and told the audience that she had attended his Rock in Rio gig last week.

However, she wasn't quite dressed for the occasion.

“I was wearing a ridiculous skirt, which was silly. It gets quite windy in Lisbon. I had a little thin jumper on, and Bruce came out and said: ‘You’re going to be cold.’" she said, according to The Mirror.

“I was a bit drunk, I’d had four glasses of wine, so I said I’d be fine.”

However, The Boss insisted on giving her his coat.

“He gave me his coat - so I was watching the show, wearing his coat. I was too embarrassed to try to put my arms in because, obviously, too small. So I just wore it on my shoulders.

“It was amazing.”
