Two men are set to make Super Bowl history as they become the first to perform at the high profile event on Sunday.

Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will perform the full Los Angeles Rams squad dance routine as their team take on the New England Patriots in Atlanta.

Previous performances have seen men assist women with stunts but never perform an entire dance routine.

Speaking to NBC News Napoleon Jinnies said: "The whole world especially the world of entertainment is in a place of being open and if you can do the job, why not?"

The duo took part in the all-female auditions and were signed to the squad in 2018.

Mr Peron hopes their performance will send a message to men around the world who want to dance.

"I want to prove that boys can dance too," he said.

"I think after college, we're not given a choice or a chance to do anything after.

"We're just told to get a nine to five job and that's it. But that doesn't work for me."
