Serena catches the cell phone thief

In 2015, Serena Williams shared an amazing story. A man tried to run away with her cell phone. However, it wasn’t very difficult for the queen of the court to run after and catch him. Here’s what Serena shared about the incident.

“This common petty thief grabbed my phone and quickly disappeared. I looked at the chair and then yelled ‘Oh my god that guy stole my phone!!’ Without even thinking I’d reacted (hence the Superwoman photo), I jumped up, dodged in and out of the cozy restaurant (jumping over a chair or two), and threw him to the ground. He started running but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was on him in a flash! ” she said.

Despite catching him in the act, the kindhearted legend still gave the man a chance to explain himself.

“I kindly asked him if he ‘accidentally’ picked the wrong phone. He stumbled over his words and probably didn’t expect this to happen. Finally, while contemplating saying the right thing to say, he said, “Gosh, you know what I did! It was so confusing there. I must have picked the wrong phone.” She added.
