A Leicester City fan has landed a £5k festive windfall following a successful £5 bet with Ladbrokes on his side topping the table on Christmas Day.
Will Kirwan, a supporter who follows the club home and away placed the long-odds punt at 1000/1 in August prior to the club’s incredible run.
The bet was placed in a local shop and the winnings will be paid in cash.
Leicester are now in to just 10/1 to land the title having been 5000/1 at the start of the season.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said:
“This has to go down as one of the most incredible winning bets of all time. A fan who had the belief backed his side to defy the odds and the cash couldn’t come at a better time.”
