Alex Ovechkin with Kobe Bryant, Serena Williams

Alex Ovechkin has been in London to support his Olympian girlfriend, Maria Kirilenko (who just lost, 6-2, 6-3, to Maria Sharapova in this morning’s semifinal). Judging by his Twitter feed, the Caps star has had the time of his life.

He’s also made some new friends. Like Kobe Bryant...
