Lewis Capaldi hailed a ‘superhero’ after rushing to help collapsed old lady

Scottish singing sensation Lewis Capaldi has been hailed as a "superhero", after he rushed to help an elderly woman who collapsed in north London.

The 27 year old star was walking with friends in Hampstead Heath when they spotted the woman on the ground and immediately called for an ambulance.

A bystander told The Sun: "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."

They added: "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."

Earlier this year, the Pointless singer announced he was taking a break from music to focus on his health, as his Tourettes became harder to manage due to his growing fame.

In June, Lewis had to stop his Glastonbury performance because he was struggling, and since then he's received lots of support for taking a well-deserved rest. He's been keeping a low profile, spending time at his other home in London.

The chart-topper said at the time: "The fact that this probably won't come as a surprise doesn't make it any easier to write, but I'm very sorry to let you know I'm going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future."

"I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like his and I'd hoped three weeks away would sort me out. But the truth is I'm still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette's.

"On Saturday it became obvious that I need to spend much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time to come."

He made a surprise return to the stage in July, weeks after announcing he was taking a break from touring. Lewis stunned fans by making a brief appearance to support his pop star pals The Vamps at Kew The Music in the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
