Singer Adele had to stop her Sydney concert after a fan collapsed with a cardiac arrest.

The Grammy winner was forced to halt the performance when a 47-year-old woman suffered the heart condition and emergency services were called, reported Daily Mirror.

More than 95,000 fans had made their way to the ANZ stadium last night and had to clear a path to allow paramedics to get to the ill woman.

The fan was taken to a local hospital in a serious condition, and Adele seemed upset about what had happened.

Eyewitness Meg Rylance says she was sitting in the next row from the woman.

"She (Adele] 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 adds.

Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.
