Talk of the devil

This expression is used when you are talking about someone and he/she suddenly appears. The full form originally was “speak of the Devil and he will appear” but now it is more common to say “talk of the devil”. It is what we say in Spanish “Hablando del rey de Roma… por la puerta asoma”
