Adele has dedicated a song to a fan after she suffered a cardiac arrest during her concert in Sydney the night before.

Currently on the Australian leg of her world tour, Adele played two concerts in Sydney over the weekend. At the first, on Friday (March 10), a 47-year-old fan collapsed, leading Adele to stop the concert to ensure that she could be treated quickly.

In the second concert on Saturday (March 11), Adele spoke about the incident to the crowd, in a clip that was shared on Australia's 9 News.

"At this point in the show last night, there was a lady, she got really ill down there and I sang this song and with my back to what was going on," she said.

"I knew what was going on but I was really scared and it was at this point I stopped the show to check if she was okay. I don't know if she's okay yet but I'd like to sing this song for her tonight."

The song in question was 'Take It All', which she then dedicated to the fan and shared her well wishes.

"I wish you a speedy recovery," she said. "I look forward to finding out who you are. I don't know who she is yet and I'll be speaking to you soon, I hope."

Adele recently took time in her concert in Brisbane to officially announce to the crowd what pretty much everyone already knew - that she's married to her long-term partner Simon Konecki.

She even found the time during her tour to fulfil a request from Elmo for the pair to meet. Whether or not she follows through on the additional request to duet 'Rolling in the Deep' together though remains to be seen.
