On Saturday afternoon, Beyoncé graced Wimbledon with her presence, supporting her friend (and Sorry video co-star) Serena Williams in the women's singles final on Centre Court.

Serena went on to beat Angelique Kerber to claim her 22nd Grand Slam title, equalling the record set by Steffi Graff.

Naturally, Queen B was thrilled... once she'd actually realised what was going on...

Joined by her husband Jay-Z, a smiling Beyoncé proved to be the most endearing cheerleader for her pal, despite appearing to have a vague grasp on the rules of the game (Bey, we've all been there...)

As Serena went on to score the final winning point of the match, the crowd (including Jay) leapt to their feet in celebration.

Beyoncé, meanwhile, remained seated, moving her head from side to side as if to say 'But, but, where did the ball go?!' before eventually cottoning on and standing to join in the round of applause with a pretty epic fist pump.

You can watch the priceless moment in the short clip below...

Just when you thought you couldn't love Bey more, she goes and throws us an inadvertent blinder like this. It's a victory not just for Williams (who once again proved herself to be one of the greatest athletes of all time) but also for those of us who have never been able to get our heads around the difference between 'love' and 'deuce,' or work out why some matches go on so, so much longer than others. Truly, we are not worthy.

The singer, who is currently on the European leg of her much-anticipated Lemonade World Tour, opted to wear a high-necked lace dress by brand of the moment Self Portrait, which is still available to buy on Net-a-Porter.

Speaking to Grazia, Serena said of her experience filming the Sorry video: 'Beyoncé is a powerful individual. She motivates me. And obviously it was super-fun.'

Lemonade and Formation have come at a critical time in America,’ she added. ‘Beyoncé wanted to push that message [of Black Lives Matter]

because it’s so important to spread it.’
