Even professional footballers such as Alexandre Pato occasionally get star-struck.

LeBron James is in Brazil for the World Cup final, and apparently he ran into Pato somewhere along the way. The former AC Milan man didn't miss an opportunity to snap a photo with the four-time NBA MVP and share it on Instagram.

Our main takeaway? Pato needs to learn to take better photos. 

As for James, with all of his world fame, even a man of his stature was humbled by the experience. 

He uploaded a shot of the Estadio Maracana with the message "The greatest sporting event I've ever been to! #WorldCupFinal #Brazil #StriveForGreatness."
