Harry Styles has ''fallen in love'' with South America while on tour with One Direction.

The pop star - who has been performing with band mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - has already had a tattoo of 'Brasil!' tattooed to his groin and has now posted a tribute to South America on his Twitter account today (12.05.14).

He wrote: ''South America, you have been absolutely incredible. I have fallen in love with you. Hope to see you again soon. H. (sic)''

The 'You & I' hitmakers performed their last South American show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, last night (11.05.14) and will now enjoy a couple of weeks relaxing before their world stadium tour resumes in Dublin, Ireland later this month, and Niall is excited about performing on home soil.

He also tweeted his thanks after their gig in Brazil, posting on Twitter: ''That was incredible Sao Paulo ! Stadium was huge ! Thank you ! Xx (sic)''

The boys have been seen cosying up to Brazilian pop singer Anitta during their trip and were also approached by legendary footballer Pele for a collaboration.

A message posted on the band's offical Instagram account, with a photograph of Harry, Louis and Zayn, also read: ''South America - you've been incredible! Next stop is Ireland! #WWATour.''
