WWE fans had the rare opportunity to meet one of their idols at a Beckton toy shop.

Wrestler Fandango signed memorabilia and posed for photographs with 350 fans at Smyths Toys Superstore in Gallions Reach Shopping Park.

Tickets were free but had to be collected from the store on a first come first served basis, leading to a long queue outside the building.

The American made his wrestling debut in 1999 and has performed under a number of different ring names, taking on the Fandango alias last year.

To celebrate the visit, the store reduced the price of two wrestling games for the day.
