Leeds United Have 13-Year-Old Cancer Patient As Mascot Through Live Feed

Leeds United allowed a 13-year-old cancer sufferer to be mascot for the day courtesy of a live feed.

With fans still not allowed in stadiums across England, there have been no mascots walking out with players due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

But Leeds came up with a brilliant alternative so that Elliot Metcalfe could have a special day regardless. Leeds skipper Liam Cooper walked out of the Elland Road tunnel with an iPad that had the brave youngster on screen.

Cooper and Luke Ayling were seen talking to Elliot, who got to experience being mascot in a virtual sense. He and his sister were then shown on the big screen as Leeds players lined up for the visit of Arsenal.

Being a mascot and walking out with your favourite team is the ultimate dream for a young football fan.

Unfortunately that wasn't possible because of the current situation but Leeds deserve great credit for thinking outside of the box and giving him a day to remember despite the current situation.
