We all have a mentor at some point in our life, whether its our parents, friends, gym teacher etc. Rihanna attended the tournament in England and met up with her old gym teacher, Roddy Estwick from Combermere School in Barbados. Estwick is now an assistant coach for the West Indies contingent.
Even though the team lost against Sri Lanka, the beauty was in the reunion between RiRi and her old coach captured by The Observer:

Superstar artiste Rihanna (@badgalriri) was at the Cricket World Cup match between Sri Lanka and West Indies at Chester-le-Street in England on Monday. The West Indies lost by 23 runs but the Barbadian singer greeted assistant coach Roddy Estwick and players afterwards. Estwick was her physical education teacher in Barbados. #Rihanna
“I love this man. I came here to see the match and was cheering West Indies to a victory,” the irrepressible 31-year-old told Barbados Today. “They played great but we just didn’t make it. But I also wanted to see Mr Estwick. He made a lasting impact on my life and he really offered great advice to me and many others when we were at school at Combermere.
