It was truly a meeting of two great sports legends.

Recently, eight-time world squash champion Nicol David posted an Instagram photograph of her meeting football icon David Beckham and it has since gained plenty of attention on social media.

Nicol in her post said "It was a legendary night meeting @davidbeckham. Out of words and so happy! Thank you for this opportunity. I will never forget it."

Nicol also shared the duo’s interaction on her Instagram Story, where the sports legends chatted briefly before taking their picture together.

"What a great photograph. Both are legends in their own right," said one netizen.

"Wow! Amazing. Wish I was there to meet them both also," wrote another.

The 48-year-old trendsetting Beckham was in Kuala Lumpur recently to officiate the "World of the Predator Exhibition" for sportswear giant Adidas at the Exchange TRX

Nicol announced her retirement on Feb 19, 2019, after an illustrious career spanning over two decades.
