A snapshot of the moment was posted to the athlete’s Instagram where people couldn’t help but love the image of Kellner’s buff bod making the robber eat dirt.
'I just acted on instinct and didn't think about it so much until after we had pinned him down,' Kellner told The Local Sweden.
'He realised quite quickly that it wasn't worth struggling.'
'I would have stepped in no matter what my outfit. Had I been naked I would also have intervened,’ she explained.
'Nothing will stop me.'
We can’t help but be reminded of this bungled burglary in Perth where the robber managed to spray himself in the face with capsicum spray.
