Premier League officials have been wearing bodycams throughout the ‘Summer Series’ in the United States.

Bankes fellow Premier League official Rob Jones had also worn a bodycam during Saturday night’s friendly between Chelsea and Brighton.

The devices have been used to captured goals and penalty incidents, along with various discussions between the referees and their assistants 

Referees will not be able to use the devices when the Premier League resumes, as they are prohibited under the laws of the game, as well as the use of live audio.

Wilson’s stunning goal in the pre-season friendly had set the tone for a thrilling match between London rivals Fulham and Brentford.

The Cottagers eventually emerged as 3-2 winners, with Bobby Decordova-Reid and Carlos Vinicius also on target for the Cottagers.
