Disabled Everton fan made history with robot mascot

Fourteen-year-old Everton fan Jack McLinden became part of Premier League history, serving as a 'remote' match day mascot against Newcastle with the aid of a robot.

Everton's fan McLinden has multiple health problems, that prevent him from being able to travel normally.

Luckily, he managed to attend his favorite team's match against Newcastle, via a remote controlled robot.

McLinden was on the field, among his beloved footballers, and he was even present at the post-match press conference, although, through the eyes of the little robot that was moved around by players and even by manager of Everton Sam Allardyce.

Everton won over Newcastle with the help of Theo Walcott's goal in 51st minute of the game. Full-time score remained 1-0 for Everton.
