Serena Williams tapped into her inner superhero on Tuesday, leaping chairs and racing to catch a thief who made off with her cell phone.

The tennis legend not only caught the thief and retrieved her phone, but she also got a standing ovation when she returned back to the San Francisco restaurant where she'd been dining when she noticed her phone was gone.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Williams explained what happened, even including a picture of herself in a superhero costume.

"So this guy is standing next to me and something (I have now dubbed it my SUPERHERO sense) told me to watch him," she wrote. "My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn't feel right."

"I looked at the chair, than shouted 'Omg that dude took my phone!!' Not thinking, I reacted (hence the superwoman photo) I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down," she continued.

She caught up with the guy, asked him if he'd "accidentally" taken the wrong phone, and then returned triumphant to the restaurant.

"Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I've got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership, and yet the calm to weather (sic) the storm," Williams wrote. "Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Always keep your things close! Fight for what's right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero!"

"Good Morning America" ran raw surveillance video of Williams chasing the phone thief and, while the leaping chairs part of Williams' account might be a bit exaggerated, it does indeed show her chasing him down.



Fans agreed with Williams' assessments of her abilities:

"THE AUDACITY of someone trying to outrun you with your personal possessions is a joke! LOVE YOU!" one person commented on her Facebook post.

"Wait . . . did that fool think he could outrun SERENA WILLIAMS????!!!! . . . He was Super-Stupid!" another said.
