MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi and Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness, a pair of men with a healthy respect for each other’s achievements in the sport, have shared a joking exchange on Twitter after Rossi posted a link to McGuinness’ first lap of this year’s Senior TT and praised his ‘big balls.’

Rossi, a TT fan who made his only trip to the Island in 2009, jokingly shared set-up suggestions after McGuinness told him that the lap, which helped secure the Morecombe Missile his 23rd TT win, could have been faster after a big moment on the exit of Ginger Hall.

The two reunited this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and the rumours suggest that the nine-time world champion is keen to find a break in his schedule to return to the TT soon.
