Professional Freddie tribute act Mauricio Torres wowed the crowds at The Beatles' legend's Chile gig, which took place last week.

Footage has emerged which sees a Freddie Mercury impersonator (almost) steal the show at a Paul McCartney gig.

The Beatles legend played the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile last Tuesday (20 March) and had an unlikely support act while his fans entered the venue.

Mauricio Torres - who is a tribute act for the late Queen frontman - attended the show as a fellow fan, but did so in full Freddie garb.

When fans started to notice him, the impersonator had no qualms breaking into Freddie's Day-O improv, which he famously sung at Live Aid.

Watch a clip of his impromptu performance above, courtesy of Twitter user Abbeyroud, who captioned her video: "freddie mercury did not want to miss paul mccartney's concert in chile either..."
