Asmir Begovic managed to get a snap with up-and-coming Hollywood star Michael B Jordan at The O2 on Thursday night.

The Chelsea goalkeeper was attending London’s latest NBA offering as the Toronto Raptors eased to a 106-103 victory over the Orlando Magic in the English capital.

Jordan is currently in London promoting his new film, Creed, which also stars Sylvester Stallone, who reprises his best-known role, Rocky.

And Chelsea number two Begovic, who has fallen behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order in recent weeks, managed to get a photo with the former Friday Night Lights actor.

Begovic wrote: “Nice to meet @michaelbjordan tonight! Will definitely check out your new movie @creedmovie this weekend.”

The Blues shot stopper got to enjoy courtside tickets as he soaked up the NBA game in a packed O2 arena on Thursday following Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion mid-week.
