A FOOD delivery driver disrupted a college basketball game between the Duquesne Dukes and the Loyola Ramblers on Wednesday.
The apparent Uber Eats employee suddenly appeared on the sidelines trying to deliver a meal order and causing confusion in the arena – but fans praised his “elite service”.
Early in the second half – with Loyola Chicago leading 40-37 and just over 16 minutes to go – officials called a time-out when a delivery driver in a yellow jacket entered the field.
The man walked along the touchline and towards one of the referees while holding a bag of food and drinks.
The driver went right behind Ramblers forward Philip Alston with the ball still in play.
The referee on the touchline first waved his arm and tried to lift the surprise guest off the ground before the officials finally decided to stop play.
It is not known who ordered the food and why and how the man got into the arena.
The delivery driver was eventually seen walking away from the court with another man.
And Uber Eats appears to have confirmed that it’s the company’s employee.
The grocery ordering and delivery platform retweeted a video of the incident, writing that the driver did “the absolute best” in the clip.
And Twitter users joined in the celebrations for the game’s unlikely hero — even if he looked confused as he tried to complete the order.
One wrote: “Lmfaooo they better tip him well.”
Another added: “His consciousness is at 0 but his determination is at 100. Whoever ordered this meal should tip him very well.”
A third said: “This is the number one delivery man in the world.”
And another tweeted: “This is elite service fr.”
Duquesne scored a 72-58 win that day, improving to 14-7 in the season.
Loyolas Alston led all players in scoring, amassing 25 points in addition to four rebounds.
