Rihanna couldn’t hold back the tears after being reunited with her school teacher at the ICC Cricket World Cup in Durham this week.

Fully embracing British culture after moving to London last year, the Work singer surprised us all when she popped up at the tournament in Durham on Monday.

But Rihanna, 31, was given a pleasant surprise herself when she bumped into her former school teacher, Mr Eastwick, which no doubt stirred nostalgia for her childhood back in her native country Barbados.

In a video clip, RiRi is seen sharing a warm hug with Mr Eastwick and bursting into joyful tears.

The popstar commented on the clip: ‘This is my teacher from school! He was a mentor and father figure to me. I haven’t seen him in years!’
