Former President Barack Obama mourned the loss of “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman, who died Friday night after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

Obama recalled that Boseman visited the White House in 2013 when he gained fame for playing baseball great Jackie Robinson in the biopic “42.”

“Chadwick came to the White House to work with children when he was playing Jackie Robinson,” Obama tweeted Saturday afternoon. “You could tell right away that he was blessed. Be young, talented, and black; to use that power to give heroes to look up to; to do everything while suffering, what use are his years. “

The former president’s words were shared in response to Boseman’s own 2016 post, where the actor attached a photo of himself and Obama in 2013 as a photo from “Throwback Thursday.”

“Thank you for your service and for your advice,” Boseman told Obama at the time, referring to himself and the former leader as “the prince and the president.”
