Arnold Schwarzenegger takes to Instagram to praise his "hero" Greta Thunberg

While saving the planet from extinction is at the forefront of her agenda, it seems climate crusader Greta Thunberg has also been hanging out with a few of her celebrity fans during her trip to California.

The Swedish teen met Leonardo DiCaprio earlier this week, and now Terminator star and former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has taken to Instagram to reveal the pair hung out. 

Taking to the social media platform to share a series of snaps, Arnie wrote: “It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes @gretathunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!”

But this isn't their first meeting. Greta opened the 2019 Austrian World Summit of non-profit environmental organisation R20 Regions of Climate Action, set up by the actor in 2011.

And she has also been travelling across America in an electric car borrowed from the keen environmentalist.

The 16-year-old refuses to fly because of the carbon emissions involved.
