Tom Brady became the first player in NFL history to have thrown 600 touchdown passes in his career during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rout of the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
The 44-year-old, already the league's all-time leader in passing yards (81,479), connected with Mike Evans with six seconds left in the first quarter for a nine-yard touchdown to reach the landmark.
He finished the day with four touchdowns in the Bucs dominant 38-3 victory over the Bears, bringing his total touchdown number to 602.
However, instead of letting Brady keep the ball to mark that history-making moment as is typical in the NFL, Evans unwittingly gave it to a lucky nearby fan.
With 100 race wins and seven world championships to his name so far, Lewis Hamilton can arguably claim to be the greatest Formula One driver in history.
Not that the 36-year-old Briton, who has the most race wins or podium places in F1 history, is thinking like that.
"I don't think a lot about the whole 'greatest of all time' because I think it's very hard to compare people," Hamilton told CNN Sport's Coy Wire.
"Just in that one moment, it's about being the greatest you can be and living to your full potential.
"So that's something that I just search for and [to stay] as focused and driven as I could possibly be.
"I think the surprising thing is that I've been racing this long and I still have that same feeling when I fail or when I don't succeed, and I turn that into a positive and use it as fuel.
"I thought that that would wear off as I got older, but it's not."
It's an approach that has seen Hamilton rise to the very top of his sport, passing some of his idols along the way.
Hamilton is now fighting for an eighth world title this season, a championship which would pull him clear of a record he currently shares with racing legend Michael Schumacher.
That's quite the accolade for the boy who was expelled from school all those years ago and whose father, Anthony, juggled three jobs, re-mortgaged the family home and dipped into his life savings to keep his son in karting.
"My dream was always to get to Formula One, to do something like Ayrton Senna -- he had three world titles," the Mercedes driver and IWC Ambassador added.
"And then to see myself match him at one point, and then go beyond that.
"To think that I'm here today, where most people don't even get one championship and to have seven is very, very crazy still.
