Rihanna has made a surprise appearance in the north-east of England to cheer on the West Indies at the Cricket World Cup.
The multi Grammy Award-winning singer joined spectators to watch the Sri Lanka v West Indies at The Riverside Durham.
She enjoyed a drink in the sunshine and smiled and laughed, despite an uninspired performance by the West Indies in the ICC Cricket World Cup group stage match in Chester-le-Street.
Sri Lanka shrugged off their World Cup disappointment as a century from Avishka Fernando carried them to 338 for six.
She remained in good spirits as she watched a lacklustre fielding display from the Windies, who won the toss under cloudy skies in blustery conditions, only for Sri Lanka openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera to lay a solid foundation.
The Umbrella singer looked summery in white, with a light jacket and sunglasses and a gold cross necklace, with her hair in long red braids.
The superstar also posed with a large West Indies flag in a photo shared by the International Cricket Council.
A post on Twitter said: “Look who’s at Sri Lanka v West Indies to Rally ’round the West Indies! Watch out for Rihanna’s new single, Shut Up And Cover Drive.”
The West Indies team also shared their excitement to be playing in the presence of the singer, tweeting: “Look who came to Rally with the #MenInMaroon today! Hey Rihanna.”
