Everton fan, 14, gets virtual mascot experience

Evertonian Jack has just made Premier League history.

The 14-year-old, who has multiple health conditions and limited mobility, has acted as a "remote" mascot for his favourite club with the aid of a robot.

The robot was carried onto the pitch by Everton captain Phil Jagielka and has a camera, microphone and speaker linked with Jack's tablet, so that he could enjoy the match day experience.
