Britsh actor Benedict Cumberbatch got to play a real-life hero that would make his on-screen characters proud.
The “Sherlock Holmes” star on television, and “Doctor Strange” in the movies was recently riding with his wife Sohie Hunter, in an Uber car in London when, according to the driver, he jumped out to stop four attackers who were mugging a cyclist working for the food-delivery firm Deliveroo.
The Uber divers said Cumberbatch pulled the attackers of the deliveryman and shouted “leave him alone.”
Deliveroo says their entire company thanks Cumberbatch for his heroic actions.
