An obliging dolphin shocked onlookers when it dove into the depths of a lagoon to retrieve a woman’s mobile phone.

NBA Miami Heat dancer Teressa Cee posted footage of the remarkable feat which saw Cacique the dolphin swim up to the water’s surface with the phone in his mouth and ‘hand’ it off to the astonished cheerleader.

Luckily for the dancer, Cacique - a well-trained dolphin owned by the Underwater Explorer’s Society of Grand Bahama Island - saw the phone drop into the water and swam down to retrieve it.

In a Facebook post, Ms Cee wrote: “True Story: While in the Bahamas, I had the opportunity to go swimming with dolphins on #BlueLagoonIsland.

True Story: While in the Bahamas, I had the opportunity to go swimming with dolphins on #BlueLagoonIsland. We were filming on this floating platform in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. So, against a my better judgment I asked someone to hold my phone for me and he accidentally dropped my phone into water and it sank to the bottom. Cacique, the dolphin, actually retrieved my phone and brought it back up to me. Cutest thing ever! #Unbelievable #Bahamas #DolphinEncounter
