Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof flaunted his defensive skills after helping a 90-year-old woman retrieve her bag from an alleged bike thief who forcefully dispossessed her.
The 26-year-old was on a date with his wife when he saw the old woman losing her valuables to the thief around 10:30am.
SunSport quoting Sportbladet reveals that the Red Devils star pursued the assailant and recovered the bag while he held on to the perpetrator until the police arrived. A statement read:
"The police would like to thank the witness for a rapid and sensible intervention made to restore the plaintiff's property."
While a Man United spokesperson added:
"He ran after the thief and got the bag back without using any violence. Victor believes he was just doing what anybody would have done in that situation."
