A British Fortnite gamer who was given a life ban for cheating ‘made another £20,000’ from his tearful YouTube apology video.
Jarvis Kaye, known as FaZe Jarvis, 17, uploaded the clip telling his 2million subscribers he was unaware using ‘aimbot’ software – which makes it easier to kill enemies – would lead to a ban from Epic Games.
Jarvis’s apology has now been seen more than 6million times in the three days it has been up.
Marketing and talent agency The Fifth has revealed the youngster likely made five figures from the post.

A spokesman told the Sun: ‘A safe guess is between the two figures $25,000 and $36,000 (£19,000 and £28,000).’
They added: ‘This could be way higher, closer to $50,000 (£39,000), however we don’t have access to things like video retention, geography, quality of viewers etc.’
Digital markets from London’s Fusion Media also said he could have earned around $27,000 (£21,000) for the video.

The gamer – who also has nearly 600,000 followers on Twitch – did not cheat during a competitive match, but did upload videos showing him using aimbots – which allow competitors to shoot others without taking careful aim
