A Taylor Swift concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was postponed due to 'extreme temperatures' after a fan died.
Concert organisers announced in a statement that a 23-year-old woman who had been at the arena where Swift's concert in Brazil was held on the Friday night (17 November) had died after being taken to hospital.
The cause of death for Ana Clara Benevides Machado, who sought medical attention at the Nilton Santos Olympic Stadium ahead of Friday’s show, has not yet been announced.
Brazil is currently experiencing very high temperatures and during her Friday performance Swift had asked members of staff to hand out water to fans.
In one video she said: "There's people that need water right here, maybe 30, 35, 40 feet back.
"So whoever is in charge of giving them that, just make sure that happens. Can I get a signal that you know where they are?"
Local media had reported that fans were not allowed to take their own water into the stadium, while some who attended the concert said they saw people suffering with the heat.
"I’m writing this from my dressing room in the stadium," Swift wrote of the decision to postpone Saturday's concert.
"The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio.
"The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers, and crew has to and always will come first."
Swift also posted her condolences to the friends and family of the woman who had died to Instagram.
She wrote: "I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show.
"I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this. There’s very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young.
"I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it. I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends.
"This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil."
Local officials asked that the show's producers provide places to distribute water and that fans should be allowed to bring their own bottles into the stadium.
Swift's concert scheduled for 20 November is still going ahead as planned.
