The track, co-written by producer Paul Epworth, was named Song of the Year at the event in London hosted by licensing body Broadcast Music Inc.

The song was the most-played on US TV and radio in 2011, notching up 1,35 million airplays.

Since release, its two million airplays is the equivalent of being played back-to-back for more than 12 years.

It had great success in the US, where it spent seven weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the chart for 65 weeks.

Adele was also awarded two other prizes from her hits Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain for being among the most-played pop songs last year.
