Premier League's first remote mascot appears at Everton
Last Updated: 24/04/18 9:12am
There was a little bit of history made at Goodison Park on Monday night when 14-year-old Jack McLinden was represented by the Premier League's first remote mascot.
Jack, who was unable to attend the match against Newcastle, suffers from multiple health conditions.
He was still able to enjoy the full mascot experience from his home via a robot.
It included taking part in the players' warm-ups, going in the tunnel before kick-off, leading the Everton team out with captain Phil Jagielka and the pre-match handshakes.
Everton went on to win the game with Theo Walcott's second-half strike enough to give Sam Allardyce's side victory over Newcastle.
Jack also got to attend the post-match news conference with the Everton boss after the 1-0 win.
Watch the video above to see the Premier League's first robot mascot in action.
