An official riding a drone delivered the ball for the final game of the Portuguese Cup (Taca de Portugal) on Sunday.
Social media users were amused at the futuristic stunt. Marvel's Dan Slott and others compared the drone to the mode of transportation used by Spider-Man's Green Goblin.
We have now reached the believable Green Goblin stage of history. https://t.co/NRWObDPfVW— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) May 30, 2017
