A child wearing a Lewis Dunk Brighton shirt pretended to be a mascot for a game against Manchester United, all from his own back garden.

Still shut inside due to the coronavirus outbreak, the video manages to recreate the matchday atmosphere for the youngster who was originally scheduled to take part in the clash between the two sides before it was postponed.

THIS IS SO PURE 😭😩 #lovefootball pic.twitter.com/7rCRGx1bDk

With the help of a player-sized person and a series of masks, the boy meets and greets several players from both sides at a makeshift Amex.

He has a kickabout during the warm-up before conversing with the referee.
