Patrick Stewart Was Desperate For A Hug And Rob Delaney Responded Beautifully

Reason 63,723 why Sir Patrick is just the best.

1. American comedian Rob Delaney announced on Twitter on Thursday evening he was heading to London next week and offered up a hug for anyone who needed one.

2. People were pretty keen on the idea.

5. Although, it was pointed out Londoners don’t really like any form of human contact.

6. But there was one man who clearly needed to feel Delaney’s embrace.

9. Delaney and Stewart are making a habit of delighting Twitter with their exchanges. In March, Prime Minister David Cameron tried to look like a serious statesman by posting this picture:

I've been speaking to @BarackObama about the situation in Ukraine. We are united in condemnation of Russia's actions.

— David Cameron (@David_Cameron)

10. And was quickly mocked. Delaney came up with this response:

.@David_Cameron @BarackObama Hi guys, I'm on the line now too. Get me up to speed.

— rob delaney (@robdelaney)

11. But as always, Sir Patrick won the day.

.@robdelaney @David_Cameron @BarackObama I'm now patched in as well. Sorry for the delay.
