Celebrated Indian athlete Anju Bobby George had a surprising encounter with former cricketer, Kapil Dev, on a flight from Delhi to Bangalore; and the two sat together and took selfies, proving to their fans across the world that when two sporting legends meet, they do what we humble folks do – click selfies.

Dev, who was seen in a blue shirt can be seen holding the camera, as both George and Dev smiled. George was seen sporting an olive green shirt in the photo.

Sharing a photo of them seated in business class of the flight, George tweeted, “1983 and 2003 flying together from Delhi to Bangalore. It was a surprise meeting after a few years @therealkapildev”
We all of course know that by 1983 George was alluding to the legendary victory of the Indian cricket team against West Indies at Lord’s stadium, led single-handedly by the confident Kapil Dev and for the uninitiated, George made India proud in 2003 when she clinched bronze at World Championships in Paris.

The unprecedented win made her the first athlete ever to win a medal at the prestigious sporting event.

George is currently a part of government’s Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) and Khelo India, and often shares photos of her sports foundations with fans.

She recently posted a photo of the foundation with the caption,“Our team and our dream place. The (athletics) track is nearing completion.”

Fans obviously cannot stop gushing over the two legends. While one said that the pair was an inspiration, another called them G.O.A.T (greatest of all time).

Fans also remembered how the two made India proud. Another said that it was an iconic flight indeed in which two legends of Indian sports flew together.
