The Odd Couple: Shaquille O'Neal Towers Over Simone Biles as They Pose Together at Super Bowl LI
It was one of the many highlights Biles had covering the Super Bowl.
Prior to the New England Patriots' historic comeback victory in Super Bowl LI, Simone Biles met another American champion, who was living large behind the scenes.
NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal posed with Inside Edition's special Super Bowl correspondent, Simone Biles, in a photo that quickly went viral due to the pair's incredible height difference.
Following their amazing photo, she said the former hoops star was "massive."
She said: "Everyone says that the number one picture of the whole entire year would probably be me and Shaq, and they said he was there. I was like ‘What?!’ He is a massive guy!"
The 4-foot-9-inch Biles met the 7-foot-1-inch O'Neal backstage just prior to the game.
It capped off a week of excitement for Biles, as she joined Inside Edition for Super Bowl 51.
While a photo with Shaq may have been the highlight, Tom Brady spotted her at a press conference earlier in the week and called her "The GOAT (greatest of all time)."
Lady Gaga also called her "an inspiration" as she saw her during a press conference Thursday.
