This is the Romanian man who delivers food orders on a bike despite having his lower arms amputated after a football accident when he was 12 years old.
According to local media, 34-year-old Florin Buricea delivers food for an online app in the southern Romanian capital Bucharest.
Photos show Buricea with a company bag on his back as he mounts his trusted bicycle.
According to local media, he lost his lower arms when he was 12 years old and playing football with his friends.
The ball went into an electrical substation and his pals reportedly forced him to go and fetch it.
Once inside, the youngster was electrocuted and ended up having both lower arms amputated, according to reports.
Local media said that Florin is also a leading member of fourth-division Dynamo’s supporters’ association and staff at the small club have praised his efforts.
A club spokesperson told local media: “Florin is Dynamo’s delegate and he takes care of everything including match preparations, team selections and technical meetings with referees and other officials.
“He sits on the bench at games and liaises with the assistant referee for substitutions.
“Florin has been through many tough situations and he is always there whenever needed.”
According to reports, his club salary is relatively low and he has to make extra cash through bicycle deliveries.
