Bosses at Adele's record label have reportedly rewarded staff with a share of the profits made by her second album.

The singer has topped the charts globally with her hugely-successful LP 21. The seven-times platinum record clocked up its 11th week at the top spot in the UK last Sunday.

According to The Sun, staff at XL Recordings have been treated to a £1,000 bonus after bosses decided to share the revenue.

"Everyone who has helped Adele achieve what she has - even in the smallest way - has been thanked," a source told the paper.

The album, which featured chart-topping single 'Someone Like You', recently returned to the number one spot in America and became the first album of the year to sell over a million copies in the country.

However, Adele's UK chart reign is expected to come to an end this Sunday as the midweek charts revealed that the Foo Fighters have established an early lead.
