A rapper from New York City who formed an unlikely friendship with an 81-year-old over an online word game has finally met his opponent.

Recently, Pastor Amy Butler of the Riverside Church in Manhattan agreed to set up a meeting with Spencer and Roz. Find out more in the video above. The tweet, along with the photos of the two hugging each other, has been liked one million times. Because one Words with Friends player, Spencer Sleyon, has a good one. A Scrabble-like gaming app, players can be matched up with either pre-existing friends or strangers, and Guttman and Sleyon-then strangers-were paired up.

"So last summer I randomly met this 80yo woman on Words With Friends". "Words With Friends" heard about the in-person meeting and tweeted, "We can't get enough of this!" Ms Butler arranged for the pair to meet face-to-face in West Palm Beach. Butler decided to make the trip happen after hearing Sleyon tell her daughter about his virtual friendship.

Butler then made a decision to bring the two together, coordinating the meeting and flying down to Florida with Sleyon.

Their meeting was made possible by NY pastor Amy Butler, who added: 'Sweet day today with Spencer and his Words With Friends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time'.
