Two martial arts teachers are dressing up as Marvel character Spiderman and cheering up kids in the UK amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Andrew Baldock (44) and his friend Jason Baird (34) have been spotted entertaining kids at Stockport, Lancashire, for a week, during their daily jogging routine. The duo’s runs are replete with acrobatic jumps and somersaults.
According to reports, their runs became so popular that there is even a social media group on Facebook where people have been putting up requests for them to come to their neighbourhoods for a visit.
“Spiderman follows strict government guidelines when out and about and always keeps social distancing in place. When you see him please shout from your window but do not come outside.” says the description of the group.
Take a look at what people have to say about their friendly new Spiderman:

This is great, but I don’t think Spider-Man should be pooping in people’s driveways.
