We prove that the Podles spheres S2p converge in quantum Gromov-Hausdorff distance to the classical 2-sphere as the deformation parameter p tends to 1. Moreover, we construct a q-deformed analogue of the fuzzy spheres, and prove that they converge to S2q as their linear dimension tends to infinity, thus providing a quantum counterpart to a classical result of Rieffel.
