Sleyon tweeted a photo with Guttman on December 1, which has been retweeted more than 240,000 times and received more than 1 million likes as of December 5.

And emotional photos show the friends sharing an embrace after Spencer flew to Florida to meet Roz.

A young man from Harlem, New York, Spencer travelled to visit 86-year-old Roz, who lives in a retirement home in Florida after meeting her online.

After connecting through the online game, Spencer said he and Roz had played more than 300 matches together.

The Washington Post reported that the friendship really took off when Guttman used the word p-h-a-t, hip-hop slang for excellent.

"Last summer I randomly met this [80-year-old] woman on Words with Friends", Sleyon tweeted soon after the meeting. A minister of a church in NY helped make the arrangements for the friends to meet in-person.

'We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine.

Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter.

Ms Butler said she has used the example of their friendship in sermons, as Spencer is a friend of her daughter's.

Sweet day today with Spencer and his #wordswithfriends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time.
