Another Twitter user wrote: ‘That was the best national anthem I have heard anywhere.’

‘Sing in both indigenous language and English. If this is available to purchase let us know.’

Ms Fox, from Newtown High School of the Performing Arts in Sydney’s inner west, has previously been involved in indigenous culture alongside the Wallaies.

She performed the national anthem in the Eora language during the unveiling of the First Nations jersey. 

Controversy has surrounded the Australian national anthem with many people calling for it to be changed as they feel it is not inclusive to Indigenous Australians.

When Kiwi sports teams take the field both the English and Maori versions of the New Zealand anthem is performed.
