Rio Olympics: Simone Biles meets actor Zac Efron

Rio Olympics: Simone Biles meets actor Zac Efron

Simone Biles has lit up Rio 2016 with her dazzling Gymnastic displays, but the American proved that even Olympic champions can still get starstruck after a meeting with Hollywood star Zac Efron.

It has been a competition to remember for Biles, who became the first gymnast from United States to win four gold medals in a single Games by winning Tuesday’s floor exercise.

But the 19-year-old’s usual poise and elegance was put to the test when Efron, best known for his roles in High School Musical and Bad Neighbors, dropped by for a visit.

Biles took to Twitter to post proof of her encounter, writing “He kissed me on the cheek just letting y’all know @ZacEfron.”

Another post read: “Just call me Mrs. Efron already @ZacEfron.”

Efron also took to social media to display his delight at meeting the dominant USA women’s gymnastics team, who have been nicknamed the “Final Five”.
