The NFL has denied Adele was given a "formal offer" to perform at the Super Bowl after she claimed she turned down the chance to sing at the event.

The British star told an audience at her concert in Los Angeles on Saturday that organisers had asked her to appear during next year's spectacular half-time show but she declined.

The NFL, and Pepsi which sponsors the Super Bowl half-time show, issued a joint statement saying they were "big fans of Adele" but that no artist had been "extended a formal offer".

In a video posted online, Adele told her LA audience that she rejected the chance to perform at next February's event because it was "not about music".
