Kobe Bryant and Thierry Henry exchange jerseys / NBA

Thierry Henry paid a visit to the recent NBA match between the San Antonio Spurs and the LA Lakers, where he met with FC Barcelona fan Kobe Bryant.

The Frenchman visited fellow countrymen Tony Parker and Boris Diaw ahead of the match, and, once the game was over, had a brief catch-up with Bryant.

The two exchanged jerseys: Henry handed the NBA star one of a no.14 blaugrana shirt with his name on the back due to the American’s love for the Catalan club, while Bryant gave the ex-Barça striker a no.24 Lakers top.

Bryant has made no secret of his love for Barça in recent years, and recently visited the team’s training session where he exchanged jerseys with Andres Iniesta.

Henry is now a television pundit for Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, and will have a keen eye on the Champions League clash between two of his former sides, Barça and Arsenal, on Tuesday.
