South Africa cricketer Chris Morris was left star-struck when he met 23-time Olympic gold medallist Michael Phelps in the national capital on Wednesday.

Morris took to Instagram to share a picture with the champion swimmer.

 

"It's not every day you get to meet a GOAT," Morris captioned the post.

The Proteas all-rounder, who will represent Delhi Capitals in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), could not play in a match against Chennai Super Kings on March 26 as he arrived late in the country.
