Fans were surprised to see an alligator turn up at a Philadelphia Phillies baseball match with its owner. Joie Henney has said they were there to meet the players in an arranged visit, but will have to go another time.

Wally – or WallyGator – is considered a support animal and has tens of thousands of followers on social media, where he’s often seen being hugged or kissed.

Speaking to Sky News, Mr Henney said they had not gone to watch the match but were due to meet the players – but by the time they arrived, the team were busy warming up.

“It was no big deal,” he said, adding they simply turned and went home.
