SPANISH pop legend and The Voice judge Alejandro Sanz was applauded at his concert in México when he threw out a spectator he saw hitting his wife.
The artist began his preamble to welcome the audience in the city of Rosarito, and then started singing, but suddenly started gesturing towards a member of the public.
Next, he abruptly stopped singing and got off the stage.
Alejandro (pictured) continued to wave his hands at the man and, when he got no response, went up to the security guards and asked them to tell the offender to leave the building.
He explained that he had seen the man beating up his wife in the audience, from his vantage point on the stage above the crowds.
Many fans whooped and clapped at Alejandro's actions.
Alejandro Sanz is a known activist who has been heavily involved in campaigning over the Prestige oil spillage off the coast of his native region of Galicia.
