Music superstar Robbie Williams is a massive football fan – he is a part-owner of his hometown team Port Vale, is co-founder of the Soccer Aid events and never seems to turn down the opportunity to play in a celebrity match.
Therefore, it is no surprise to see him get quite excited when he met arguably the greatest footballer of all-time - Diego Maradona – at the top of an Austrian mountain.
Robbie posted the picture on Facebook with the message: "The Hand of God meets God. I wish he was playing this year's Soccer Aid! #Maradona"
He also posted the photograph to his 2.25 million followers on Twitter.

Just one small problem Robbie…that's not actually Maradona.
Insert your 'He's Not the One' jokes below.
Instead the person picture with the former Take That star was a 49-year-old Turkish- born German called Abi Atici who has been fooling people into thinking his is the Argentinian legend for the last two years.
"I am Maradona's double. I work in a sports shop and come from Bad Dietzenbach, but for the last 20 years I have been making appearances as Diego Maradona," he is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.
"I was discovered when I went to a football game between Bayern Munich and Naples in 1989 - the next day there was a picture in the local paper saying that Maradona had been in the stadium.
"When I looked I realised I was that person."
Atici explained how Robbie spotted him in the the ski resort of Ischgl in the southern Austrian province of Tirol and gave him a hug before saying 'I love you' and kissing him on the cheek.
"Robbie really didn't realise I was not the real thing. I was chatting with his wife Ayda who also speaks Turkish. She was really nice," he said.
"Both Robbie's dad and Ayda took their phones and snapped pics of us together. I never thought such a world famous star would fall for my double act. It is sensational. It all happened so quickly. I will never forget that day!"
