The pair crossed paths numerous times in the Premier League, particularly during the heady days of Manchester United’s fierce EPL title rivalry with Arsenal.

However, despite their storied mutual history, it appeared as though the duo had little to discuss when they came face to almost-face once again.

In fact, while Sir Alex appeared to attempt to catch up with Henry, the Frenchman—so often the nemesis of Fergie’s Red Devils—appeared keen to avoid the legendary manager’s gaze.

Henry and Ferguson watched on as Novak Djokovic dispatched Richard Gasquet in the first semi-final, before taking their place for the second contest, the semi between Andy Murray and Roger Federer.

Admittedly, while this clip appears to show that relations are frosty between the managerial great and the former striking star, the two did take a moment for a cordial exchange in between matches.

As if these two football greats didn’t provide enough star quality, they were joined by Welsh singing sensation Shirley Bassey and Nigerian actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.
