UK Fortnite player Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson has gained more than 1m subscribers on YouTube in less than the space of a year.
It’s been remarkable to watch the rise of Mongraal, who, almost one year ago signed to Team Secret, especially as he was only 13 years old at the time.
He’s now 14 years old and has become one of the most popular players and content creators around on Fortnite.

Epic Games recently announced a Fortnite World Cup with a $130m prize pool. The news comes after EA released its Apex Legends battle royale game which has taken some focus away from Fortnite over the past month, but Fortnite is of course still very much a huge deal.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for the UK Fortnite player.
