While on vacation a group of tourists, who were climbing the iconic "Rocky" steps in Philadelphia, got to take a souvenir with them-- a photo with the one and only Rocky Balboa.

That's right, Sylvester Stallone saluted the fans at the top of the steps and took a selfie with the three friends. He approved of the friends' race and even told them they were fast.

Stallone is currently in Philadelphia filming the Rocky spinoff "Creed" with "Fruitvale Station" and upcoming "Fantastic Four" actor Michael B. Jordan.

Apparently it does pay off to run those steps... just ask those guys.
