A paralysed Manchester United fan is able to play FIFA again after friends helped build the first mouth-controlled games console.

Will Clark suffered spinal injuries while taking part in a triathlon in 2012, breaking the right half of his neck during the cycling stage.

Having missed the enjoyment of tasks such as cooking and playing his PlayStation over the past three years, the 30-year-old from Cumbria can now get back to it with the help of his specially designed controller.

He said, per the Daily Mail:

After the accident, I had to let other people do thing for me that I would have done without even thinking about it.

I used to love cooking and had to let someone else do all my meals for me. There were things that I never thought that I would be able to do again - getting back to play on the PlayStation was one.

At the moment I am really into FIFA. I have a special controller which I can operate - I use my chin to move one of the joysticks and can press the buttons with special pads I hit with my shoulders.

My friends and I are very competitive with each other. Preston North End has always been my local team that I supported, but the one in the Premier League is Manchester United.

Somebody get the man FIFA 16, pronto.
