A BBC documentary has captured the heartwarming moment nature filmmaker Sir David Attenborough crawled on all fours next to a blind baby rhinoceros.
The 86-year-old presenter was filming his latest series called Africa when the baby mammal ran towards him.
"When we think we're finishing, someone won't let us go," Attenborough says in the voice-over.
"He starts to squeak, and we're able to have a little chat."
Attenborough becomes visible emotional when he went down on hands and knees and began exchanging squeaks with the tiny rhino.
The rhino is currently awaiting an eye operation in the hopes of restoring its sight before it can be realised back into the wild.
Attenborough told Radio 5 Live that while he rarely shows emotion on camera, he has often cried at seeing the suffering of animals.
"I've been deeply moved and upset and worried. How can you not be?"
