Some of the biggest names in music were at Glastonbury this weekend but a reveller who went up on stage has stolen the show after performing an amazing rap.

A music-lover called Alex was called up to the Other Stage by British hip hop stars Dave and AJ Tracey to perform their track Thiago Silva, named after the Brazilian footballer.

The rapper is known for asking for a fan to join him on the track at his gigs and picked Alex because he was wearing a Paris Saint-Germain shirt with the defender's name on the back.

And Alex sent the crowd wild when he performed admirably alongside the professionals, leading to fans on social media claiming he'd 'nailed it' - even the footballer himself, who tweeted a thank you message to his fan earlier today alongside clapping emojis. 

A Twitter user called Alex Mann, of Wells, Somerset, has since identified himself as the performer and said online: 'So glad I didn't f*** it'.
