Driver becomes 'millionaire' after returning tourist's lost phone

A driver in Bali became an overnight "millionaire" after finding and returning a tourist's lost phone.

In a viral TikTok clip that's racked up 1.7 million views online, Archie wrote: "When you lose your phone on Canggu Beach so set a $2 million reward for the drivers."

The clip showed GoJek scooter drivers coming together in the middle of the night to hunt for the phone.

When one of the men retrieves it, Archie hands him 20 Rp100,000 (Indonesian Rupiah) notes – equivalent to around £100.

The comments were soon flooded with fellow TikTokers in awe of the wholesome footage that saw the men ecstatic to find the phone.

"I actually love them, like they're so happy for him to receive the money there's no jealousy or hatred. that money's going to help him soooo much," one wrote, while another added: "I don't know why, but I'm so happy for them."

A third wrote: "It may be cheap for you, but man thank you, you just made someone's day. That was a lot for US Indonesians."
