Fans can't get enough of the coolest mascot football has ever seen at Hungary vs Iceland

If you were going to choose one game *not* to watch at Euro 2016, Iceland versus Hungary might well be it.

Yeah, both sides might have done pretty well in their opening matches, but it's fair to say neither are blessed with the kind of star quality that some of the other matches at the tournament have had.

But many of those that did choose to tune in to the BBC's coverage of the game were instantly rewarded by quite possibly the coolest mascot the footballing world has ever seen.

Unlike the kid we saw struggling to contain his excitement before the Spain versus Czech Republic match last week, this youngster was the master of composure when he found himself staring down the lens of a television camera.

Standing in front of the Icelandic players as they belt out their national anthem, he can be seen glancing up at one of the Stade Velodrome's big screens. When he's sure that his face is on show, he switches his glance to the camera, winking to the millions watching on television.
