A hungry man with a hankering for Greek food got the surprise of his life when the Mediterranean meal he was craving turned up on his doorstep 2,263 miles away in England.
Andrew Tsirtsikos, 27, was at home in Hull while his brother Alexander, 31, was on family holiday in Greece and kept bombarding him with mouth-watering photographs of his favourite Greek cuisine.
To stop his younger brother feeling completely left out, Alexander packaged up a portion of souvlaki, a popular dish of grilled meat, wrapped in pitta bread with salad, and sent it thousands of miles to England.

Andrew Tsirtsikos, 27, (pictured) received the Greek speciality from his brother Alexander, 31, who was visiting the Mediterranean country 2,263 miles away
Alexander had thoughtfully packed up some souvlaki, a popular dish of grilled meat which had been wrapped in pitta bread with salad and chips then posted it in an ice cream container
Surprisingly the ice cream container of souvlaki, which had been sent at 11.50pm on Thursday May 5, arrived in England the following day at 5pm.
Footage shows Andrew’s amazed reaction as he opens the parcel to reveal the tasty dish he had been craving.
According to LadBible, ‘apparently he absolutely smashed it down because somehow the tzatziki had kept it relatively fresh.’
Alexander said: ‘My brother loves souvlaki and he couldn’t get the time off and was craving it so much.
‘We said we would bring him back souvlaki as a joke but didn’t tell him we were actually going to send him some.’

In the clip Andrew can be heard saying: ‘This is the best present I could have had. It’s like I am back in Greece, that is quality.’
He raises the dish to the camera so the contents of the box are revealed, as his friends erupt with laughter around him.
