Benfica have proven that the robots are taking over our world, piece by piece, by using drones to give out shirts to fans at their Estadio da Luz home during their match against Rio Ave on Monday.

Benfica thrashed Rio Ave 4-0 to close in on the title in Portugal.

But the action off the field (or just above it), produced a remarkable picture:
