A dedicated dad engrossed in the football held his mobile phone behind his back so his daughter can watch cartoons.

On March 10, Atlanta United fan Andrew, 30, held his phone up behind his back so that two-year-old Avery could keep watching cartoons while her dad enjoyed the thrills of the game.

The adorable scene was captured by Taylor Scalera, who uploaded it on social media – naming Andrew ‘dad of the year’ – where it has been viewed 1.5million times.

Taylor said: “Normally she rides on her father’s shoulders during a match.

“She’s a fan of the game, though she still has trouble tracking the ball.”
