An eight-year-old girl has stolen our hearts after a video of her greeting her deaf delivery driver went viral on social media.

After seeing the delivery driver at least once a week during lockdown, little Talulah sparked up an unlikely friendship with Hermes delivery driver Tim Joseph.

However, after learning that Tim was deaf, Talulah - from Ashton-Under-Lyne, England - decided to learn some sign language in an effort to better communicate with the friendly key worker.

In a heartwarming video, Tallulah is seen greeting a smiling Tim at their front gate, as she signs to him: "Have a good day".

Check out the incredible video below:

The touching footage was uploaded to Twitter by Tallulah's mom, Amy Roberts, who accompanied the video with the following caption:

"This is our @Hermesparcels delivery man, we see him 1 or 2 times a week, start of lockdown Tallulah drew him a #thankyou Rainbow, he still has it proudly on show in his van, they have built up quite a friendship over these last few weeks."

After being uploaded to the social media site back in June, the clip has amassed a huge 9.2 million views and over 53,000 likes.

Tim later told the BBC: "Tallulah realized I was deaf and then one day she surprised me when she signed to me, 'Have a good day', I think she must have learned sign language at school.

"I was very happy and I then showed Tallulah how to sign, 'Good morning, have a good day' and then she signed it perfectly and it absolutely made my day."

Replying to another Twitter user, Amy also revealed how her daughter considers Tim a true friend, and even asks her if she has any packages coming.

She wrote: "Yeah he is, always smiling and friendly, they always have their little sign language conversations, so cute. Tallulah’s always asking me.... have you bought anything mum? Is MY friend coming today??"

The youngster's friendship with Tim started when she recognized his hard work throughout lockdown, and decided to draw him a picture of a rainbow that read "thank you" - a picture that Tim now proudly displays in his van window.

It goes without saying that their amazing story brightened the day of many people on social media:

The video was also seen by Hermes themselves, who replied to Amy on Twitter, saying: "Hi Amy. This is lovely to see. We're glad that the driver is offering such lovely service and has become friends with Tallulah.

"Please could you pop us a DM with a recent tracking number and contact details so we can get him the praise he deserves?"
