“So now that I’ve proved to her that I can do stuff, I’m really happy.”

His mother, Lisa Dallman, told the BBC: “If I’m honest with you I’ve been quite against him gaming. I’ve been more pushing him to his schoolwork.

“I’ve actually thrown an XBox out, snapped a headset. And then leading up to the games, getting his visa, we had problems with that so we had a week of a nightmare.

“Then the dog ate his birth certificate. And then my work messed up my wages, so three things went wrong before we started heading here so I knew we were on an even keel and everything was going to go right.”

Asked about the prize money, Ms Dallman said: “I think Jaden’s not really a materialistic person. He will have a lifetime supply of Uber Eats, and I think that will do him, to be fair.

“Just sitting there playing video games and eating takeaways, Jaden would be in his element.”
