VIDEO: FC Tokyo mascot rides illuminated unicycle

Had been practising for big day.


A packed Ajinomoto Stadium on Sunday was treated to some extra entertainment as the FC Tokyo mascot attempted to ride a unicycle on ‘Teddy Bear Day’ at the club.

Tokyo Dorompa, an anthropomorphic tanuki or Japanese raccoon dog, had obviously been practising for his stunt in front during the side’s 1-0 J1 League win over Vissel Kobe on Sunday.

There were huge celebrations at the ground for the match that saw numerous teddies as well as an Andrés Iniesta lookalike, who the mascot became quite friendly with.
