    I'm coming to London Monday if anyone needs a #hug.

    People were pretty keen on the idea.

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

    @robdelaney WE DON'T LIKE TO BE TOUCHED

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

    And this is what he received in reply. So beautiful.

    Sir Patrick Stewart seemed very happy with what he saw.

    .@robdelaney just the sight of that chest hair is comforting.

    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.

    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.

    But as always, Sir Patrick won the day.
