Goal-line technology: How Hawk-Eye will work

British-based firm Hawk-Eye have been chosen as the provider of goal-line technology for the Premier League.

This video is produced by Hawkeye to show how the technology will work using a number of cameras placed around the ground.

It is similar to the systems used in tennis and cricket, and was ratified at meeting of the 20 top-flight clubs in London on Thursday.
