Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club to ban "selfie sticks" after a string of complaints from disgruntled supporters at White Hart Lane.

The photography phenomenon, which is a telescopic rod that allows people to take “selfie” photos from beyond arm’s length, has been banned by the London club.

The move was highlighted by a fan on Twitter who posted a response from the club which outlined the ban will come into effect for the FA Cup replay against Burnley next week.

"Upon review, "selfie sticks" have now been banned from entering White hart Lane," the statement read. "All stewards will be notified prior to the next home fixture."
