Young man meets 81-year-old he befriended on 'Words with Friends'

The two became long-distance buddies while playing the online game Words With Friends, where the octogenarian caught his attention by playing the word "phat".

Sleyon is a 22-year-old rapper who lives in NY, while Guttman is an 81-year-old retiree who lives in Florida.

His tweet has been retweeted more than 147,000 times, including by the Words With Friends account, which replied: 'We can't get enough of this!

Still, while they may be all smiles in person, it sounds as though their games are fairly intense, with Spencer showing no signs of going easy on his pal despite being more than six decades her junior.

Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best managers in world football. If people don't believe me, let's cancel our press conferences and just play the games".

After their meeting, Sleyon tweeted these photos of him and Roz. And finally, last week, the unlikely duo got to meet in person in Florida after a pastor coordinated their meeting.

"I was like, yo, how do you know that word?" We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine. Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person'.

Being touched by their story, Rev. Butler flew with Sleyon to Guttman's retirement home, where the sweet reunion took place.

Butler was the one who arranged the trip for Sleyon, where the pair had lunch and toured the local neighborhood.
