World-famous tennis player Serena Williams shared news of how her phone was stolen while she was having dinner.
The 34-year-old wrote a detailed message on her Facebook page on Wednesday, telling fans of the dramatic scene.
The Wimbledon champion recovered her stolen phone at a Chinese restaurant
The post, which has been shared over four thousand times, went into detail about the theft, along with a photo of the tennis champion dressed as a superhero.
Serena told Facebook fans that she had been at a Chinese restaurant with a friend on Tuesday when a man approached their table. She wrote: "However, I kept watching him from the corner of my eye. Than when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, than shouted "Omg that dude took my phone!!""
The reigning Wimbledon tennis champion ran after the man and retrieved her phone, saying, "When I got back into the restaurant I received a standing ovation. I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bully's and other men. It was a win for the ladies! Just because you are a lady don't be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero! SuperSerena and her sidekick quailman."
Serena and Venus Williams have been playing professional tennis since the nineties
The American star, who's rumoured to be dating rapper Drake, proved she wasn't to be messed with.
Although Serena showed she was tough, she also has a soft side, especially for her sister and fellow tennis player Venus Williams. Serena recently shared a touching photo of the two sisters when they were young.
The post read: "I'm not doing so well without @venuswilliams I'm getting mentally sick. I'm lonely, I'm sad. I just really miss my best friend. My twin. My heart. My sister. I know you are working but I'm not the same without you. can u come back please? I promise I will stay out of your room (maybe) although I was just there getting some things I needed #littlesister"
