Watch this motorcyclist jump off his bike mid-traffic to run after a robber, who stole a bag from a passer-by. Although the biker couldn’t catch the perpetrator, he managed to recover the bag and return it to the owner, a middle-aged woman, who gave him a hearty kiss in return.

This video from Kiev, published last week, is making the rounds online, with some praising the motorcyclist as a hero, while others question the video’s authenticity.

Internet users claim to have found the alleged robber’s profile on social media VKontakte, although the account has since been deleted.
