(KSDK) – A recent rain delay at the French Open appeared to be bad luck for the tennis players but good luck for a ball boy.

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic invited a ball boy who was holding his umbrella to sit on the bench with him.

They appear to become instant BFFs as Djokovic gives him the tennis racquet and he takes over umbrella duty. They also share a good drink while awaiting the rain to stop.

The video has been shared more than 184,000 times on Facebook and received more than 170,000 likes.

The delay only last a few moments, but it's definitely a moment that that ball boy will cherish.
