Serena Williams: international tennis champion, one of the greatest athletes of all time, and...superhero. In a Facebook post on Wednesday morning, the Wimbledon champ shared a wild story about taking down a thief who tried to steal her cellphone while she was at dinner with friends.
“I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down,” Williams wrote. “He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”
As seen in the CCTV footage above, Williams easily got her phone back from the alleged thief. In the post, accompanied by a picture of her as Supergirl, she encouraged fans to also listen to their "inner superhero."
“Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I’ve got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm.”
