With the hustle and bustle of a restaurant, it’s common for a plate or glass fall to the ground and shatter. But one woman escaped that embarrassment with some fancy footwork.

The young waitress was working at a bar in Pontevedra, Spain. She reaches for something when a coffee cup tumbles off a shelf, rolls down her arm, and is just about to crash into the ground—but she’s able to send the chinaware into the sink with her foot. The kick was hard enough to launch the cup a few feet, yet gentle enough that it didn’t break. 

Looks like everyone’s pretty shocked by her quick reflexes.

We wonder if even Cristiano Ronaldo could pull this off.
