Benedict Cumberbatch Tackles a Mugger, Saves Delivery Man

Benedict Cumberbatch is a real-life superhero after he fought off attackers who were trying to mug a Deliveroo cyclist.

The 41-year-old Avengers: Infinity War actor and his wife Sophie Hunter were riding in an Uber when they spotted four men attacking the delivery guy, according to The Sun.

““I went to turn down into Marylebone High Street and we saw four guys were pushing around a Deliveroo cyclist. My passenger jumped out, ran over and pulled the men away,” Uber driver Manuel Dias said. “I had hold of one lad and Benedict another. He seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He was very brave. He did most of it, to be honest.”

“They tried to hit him but he defended himself and pushed them away. He wasn’t injured. Then I think they also recognized it was Be­ne­dict and ran away,” he added.

Deliveroo has spoken out to thank Benedict “for his heroic actions. On behalf of everyone at deliveroo: thank you so much.”

    So, in other words, Patrick Melrose is doing devastatingly bad in the ratings. Well, this isn’t going to make me watch it either. It looks too boring to even get through a preview.

    I gotta be honest,I don’t see the big deal about Benedict. He’s a capable actor but I don’t get the hysterical response to him most people have.

    I don’t either.
