Everyone is talking about it: Cheng and Mitchell cute it up!

So at the World Cup Final, during beam, Cheng Fei and Lauren Mitchell had a brief attempt at conversation that was serendipitously captured by the live feed. Everyone’s talking about it.
The transcript goes something like this:
Cheng: Hey! Very good.
Mitchell: Oh! Thank you!
[they look around awkwardly]
Mitchell: [pointing toward the vault] Your vault, yesterday?
Cheng: Uhhh …
Mitchell: Your vault? [makes international hand gesture for vault] Yesterday. Was good. [gives thumbs up]
Cheng: Ah! [laughs]
Cheng: [all of a sudden, pointing to floor] You do floor?
Cheng: [shrugs, goes back to winding up her tape]
Mitchell: Good luck for floor.
