Whilst over 7000 fans waited outside the venue, Lorde sent her staff to hand out churros - a sweet snack from the Spanish and Portuguese cuisine.

Fans have gone crazy for the kind act on Twitter, calling the Green Light singer “beautiful” and “humble”.

Despite the majority of posts being written in Spanish, they can be translated into English on the social media app.

One video posted on the social media platform shows a woman, who speaks in English, carrying bags of the fried dough treat, telling concert goers she will be handing them out in order.

Lorde got the churros from El Moro, which is renowned in Mexico City for being open 24 hours a day, selling hot chocolate and churros.

The singer is now being called the “queen of churros”, with one fan writing: “Lorde sending churros to her Mexican fans omggggg humble mi chiquita churro queen.”

However, some fans were sad they didn’t get a free sweet treat as they were already inside the venue.

One fan asked: “I’m already in Lorde, where are my churros?”

Following a “spectacular” concert, Lorde also came out of the Pepsi Center “to greet her fans in person”, according to Mexican publication Sopitas.
