One of the iconic moments from last weekend's Glastonbury festival appears to still be making waves in the music industry.

When rapper Dave asked superfan Alex Mann, 15, to get on stage with him to perform his single "Thiago Silva", fans on social media couldn't get enough of the video.

It appears to have gone down well with fans, as the song, originally released with rapper AJ Tracey in 2016, has re-emerged as a popular hit once again.

Music fans have been streaming the song once again and is now number eight in the United Kingdom Top 50 on Spotify, which includes the most played tracks in UK right now.

Only Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish are ahead of Dave and AJ Tracey.

Hours after his performance at Glastonbury with Alex, streaming figures for Dave's songs on Spotify rose by a huge 88 per cent between the hours of 3 and 4am on Monday.

And fellow Glastonbury star Alex has also been enjoying his time in the spotlight, having modelled for BooHoo and appeared on Good Morning Britain.
