Serbian authorities are investigating reports of a real-life Superman after people claimed to have seen a cloaked figure flying over their houses.

Hundreds of residents in Ljubovija described seeing a cloaked person flying above buildings and changing directions while in mid-air, local daily Blic reported.

One local said: "It was like something out of Superman. No one has any rational explanation for what we all saw."

Police in the town have refused to comment.

Fulamak! I reckon he is indeed really returning to earth. Still feeling sceptical? See for yourself. And maybe then "you'll believe a man can fly!" (*refer 1978 'Superman The Movie' flick)
