Lewis Capaldi has been hailed a "hero" for coming to the aid of an elderly woman who collapsed in a park.

The Someone You Loved singer was enjoying a walk on Hampstead Heath in London when he and his friends came across an OAP who was lying on the ground, the Scottish Sun reports.

He is then said to have rushed over to the lady to help her and called 999.

The 27-year-old then waited with her for an ambulance to arrive. 

An onlooker who witnessed the incident told the paper: “Lewis is not just a superstar but a superhero.

“We saw him helping an old woman who had collapsed on the ground and it turned out he’d rushed over to help when he saw her.

“Lewis and his mates called an ambulance and made sure they stayed with the woman until help arrived.

“He clearly has a massive heart. Good on him.”
