Adele was left shaken after a fan collapsed during her Sydney concert forcing her to stop the show for a number of minutes.

The Hello singer was distressed when she discovered a 47-year-old woman in the audience collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest in the ANZ stadium in the city.

More than 95,000 fans were in the audience of the Syndey date of the Grammy winner's 'Adele Live 2017' tour.

According to the Mail Online, the audience member was rushed to a local hospital in a "serious condition".

In a video captured by a member of the audience, Adele is clearly upset as she explains to the audience that someone has fallen ill in the crowd.

A source told the publication: "She stopped the concert and she was like, 'I'm so sorry but someone got hurt and I have to check they're okay'.

"She actually seemed really tearful," the concert-goer said.

After paramedics carried the woman out on a stretcher, Adele continued with the show, despite being visibly upset.
