We already knew that Bruce Springsteen was a nice guy despite his decades of insane fame, but he's proven that he hasn't lost his gentlemanly touch.

Adele regaled her audience in Lisbon with a story about The Boss at the weekend, saying that she had gone to his Rock in Rio gig in the Portuguese capital last week in the wrong attire for an outdoor gig.

According toThe Mirror, she told the audience: "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.’ I was a bit drunk, I’d had four glasses of wine, so I said I’d be fine.”

Nevertheless, he insisted on her being protected from the elements. "He gave me his coat - so I was watching the show, wearing his coat," she said. "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.”

So the moral of the story, basically, is if you're heading along to Croke Park at the weekend, make sure you wrap up warm - because he's just one man with one coat in a stadium of 80,000. And also, none of us are Adele.
