One of the Leeds mascots played a handshake trick on Norwich’s Mario Vrančić before a Championship clash between the two sides on Saturday evening.

A proud dad on the sidelines videoed his daughter making her way along the line of visiting players ahead of the late kick-off at Elland Road.

The final member of the Norwich side she was to reach turned out to be Bosnian midfielder Mario Vrančić.

But the young mascot chose to ignore his outstretched hand and instead placed a thumb on her nose and wiggled her fingers at him before running off.

Vrančić went on to score two goals in a 3-1 away win.
