Chelsea fan Jordan Brightman-Charles ordered a takeaway on Wednesday and this random decision of his ended up becoming one of the craziest moments of his life.

The 21-year-old a social mediaeditor for YouTube side, opted for a McDonald's on the evening of February 23rd, 2021. And what happened next was truly epic.

"Neither my mum or I could be bothered to cook, so we decided to get a takeaway on UberEats, as you do." he told SPORTbible. "I decided to go for a McDonald's because it'd been a while. It was a standard order really."

After waiting for some time, Jordan got a confirmation message with the rider name Roberto Carlos.

He said, "I saw the "your driver is..." notification and I clocked the name said Roberto Carlos. I thought I was seeing things, so I went on the app and the driver was actually called Roberto Carlos. Straight away I knew that I had to put a tweet our because it made me chuckle. I tried to think of something clever and then I remembered that pinger of a free kick he scored against France and thought I'd go for it."

The tweet Jordan made became viral and then what followed was absolutely epic as the legendary Roberto Carlos himself replied to his tweet asking, "How was your food?"

On being asked about how he felt when his tweet was going viral, Jordan said, "As soon as I posted it, my notifications were going crazy, which I didn't expect. I'd previously had a driver called Adriano but that tweet didn't blow up."

Some time later, as his Tweet began to go viral, Jordan's order arrived and UberEats driver Roberto Carlos was waiting outside his door.

"Me and my mum were chatting with him and he was fairly nice," the 21-year-old said before adding, "We made a joke about his name and then he told us he's actually named after Roberto Carlos the singer, not the footballer."

Well, it turns out there is a 79-year-old, Brazilian singer-songwriter called Roberto Carlos. In fact, he was considered one of the most influential artists in Brazil during the 1960s and has a net worth of $160 million.

Nevertheless, that was one epic night for Jordan and football fans on Twitter.
