There was a rumor going around for many years that Hitler was so very disrespectful towards Olympic champion Jesse Owens, when in fact, this rumor turned out to not be true.

Hitler actually admired Jesse Owens, and shook hands with him after Owens’ Olympic win at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Hitler even gave Jesse Owens “a commemorative inscribed cabinet photograph of himself.” And according to the MailOnline.co.uk, legendary sports reporter Siegfried Mischner, 83, Owens carried around a photograph of Hitler in his wallet.

Watch this brief video clip of the two interacting with each other.
