Over the last year, Adele has captured thousands of hearts through, the singer’s onstage charm winning over concert-goers around the world.

Midway through a performance in Mexico City, the 28-year-old ran around the stage after a bat flew toward her and the audience.

“There’s a bat!” she said into the microphone. “It landed right by your head. Oh my God, there’s a f***ing bat. Welcome to Mexico! I’m happy to be here but a f***ing bat, Jesus christ.”

After seconds of ducking around, things returned to normal. Watch a clip of the incident below, as picked up by BBC Newsbeat.

Earlier this year, publications reported that Adele’s current world tour may be her last for a decade, a source detailing how the singer wishes to concentrate on bringing up her son, Angelo.

"Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life,” they said at the time. “She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won't be able to join her any more.”

The source went on to explain how Adele “doesn't want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up” and that “it's an easy decision for her to give up touring for him,” adding that she won’t embark on another world tour for at least 10-years.

However, although she would not tour, the singer has considered doing a Las Vegas residency, following in the footsteps of Elton John, Celine Dion, and Britney Spears.
