LONDON, England (WMAR) - British actor Benedict Cumberbatch may play a superhero in movies, but he was a real-life hero in London.

Cumberbatch saved the life of a cyclist.

He's credited with jumping out of his Uber cab and saving a cyclist from a group of criminals who were trying to mug him.

The company the cyclist works for, Deliveroo, thanked Cumberbatch in a tweet, calling him brave.

This all happened back in November and came to light this weekend.
