WATCH: Rihanna turns up at the Cricket World Cup

Rihanna has made a surprise appearance in the north-east of England to cheer on the West Indies at the Cricket World Cup.

The Umbrella singer was spotted by Sky Sports cameras in the crowd as she watched the West Indies against Sri Lanka.

The singer from Barbados, where cricket is already a popular sport, cheered on from her seats with a friend as she wore a large white jacket which she paired with a matching crop top and high-waisted white trousers.

And it didn’t take long for social media to explode with fans stunned reactions to her surprise visit.

One Twitter user exclaimed ‘RIHANNA IS WATCHING CRICKET…OMG! OMG! OMG” and another tweeted ‘Rihanna is at the cricket she’s actually a goddess.’

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.’
