PHOTO: Tiger Woods waves up at Yao Ming during Nike China visit

Tiger Woods, meet Yao Ming. Yao, meet Tiger.

The two superstars got together on Friday during Woods' visit to Nike's Chinese campus. The 14-time champion and the former Houston Rockets center met in Shanghai during a promotional event. Woods shared a picture from the interaction on Twitter.

Just so you can draw a clear height comparison between the two athletes, Woods is 6 feet, 1 inch tall. Ming is 7 feet, 6 inches tall. So that's about an 18-inch gap.

It's unclear what the pair talked about on stage, but it does seem like Woods was happy to ask about the (likely hazy) weather forecast here Ming breathes his air.
