One of the many things we love about Adele is just how relatable she is (if not through her songs and what she gets up to in her spare time), and snaps of her reacting to the NBA finals match between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns showed her being just that.

It wouldn’t be the first time Adele has revealed her passion for sports, as she posted a clip to Instagram earlier this month of her celebrating Harry Kane’s goal in England’s semi-final match against Denmark in the Euros.

“It’s bloody coming home,” the caption read.

This time, however, with Adele captured open-mouthed as she watched the basketball, Twitter fans all had the same response:
