The '3 Words' singer and RiRi exchanged friendly messages on Twitter following the conclusion of the 'Talk That Talk' star's six-month tour.

Rihanna has described Cheryl Cole as a 'sweetheart' after the 'Parachute' singer tweeted congratulations to her last night (22nd December).

Cheryl was at London's O2 Arena yesterday for the final night of Rihanna's 'Loud' world tour and messaged the 'Talk That Talk' star to tell her the performance had been 'amazing'.

"Just left last #Loud concert. Amazing!!" Cheryl tweeted. "To put on 98 of the same shows like that and give your all takes something special.

"Congratulations on completing your tour @rihanna. Have an amazing Christmas, well deserved break and another amazing year!"

After retweeting both of Cheryl's Twitter posts Rihanna replied saying she appreciated the Girls Aloud star's message.

Rihanna tweeted: "@CherylCole u are a sweetheart! Really!!! Thank you."

The Bajan singer was presented with a special award yesterday by the O2 Arena for breaking the record for most people performed to on a single tour at the venue.
