Well done Jaden Ashman! … You’ve really put UK on the map!
A British teenager has won nearly a million pounds after coming second alongside his teammate in the Fortnite World Cup finals. Jaden Ashman, from Essex will split $2.25m (£1.8m) with his Dutch partner.
The 15-year-old, competing under the name Wolfiez, told the BBC he was “stunned” to have finished so high.
Popular online shooter game Fortnite has 250 million users worldwide, and the event’s prize pool of $30m is the biggest ever at an esports event. Jaden and his team-mate Dave Jong (Rojo) came second in the duos event.
