Adele congratulates Team GB’s Helen Glover and Heather Stanning on winning Olympic gold

Singer sends a rare tweet to laud Team GB's first gold medalists

Adele has taken to her Twitter account to congratulate two of Great Britain’s athletes for their Olympic gold medals today (August 1).

The ’21’ singer is currently pregnant with her first child with partner Simon Konecki and has not made a public appearance for some weeks.

She rarely uses her Twitter account, but made an exception to praise British rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning after they won gold in the Women’s Pairs rowing final, the first gold medal a Briton has picked up at this summer’s Olympics.

She wrote on “Go on girls! Congrats Helen and Heather, so happy for you! Our 1st gold medalists!”

Earlier this year, the singer won the PRS for Music Most Performed Work award for ‘Rolling In The Deep’ and Songwriter Of The Year at the Ivor Novello Awards at a ceremony in London. Speaking of her single ‘Rolling In The Deep’, the singer told the audience: “I really didn’t think it was going to do anything!”

Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis also recently revealed that he wanted Adele to headline the Pyramid Stage at next summer’s festival, but that the singer said no.
