This punter is refusing to cash out on Leicester… and he actually supports BRIGHTON

Leicester fans have been rushing to cash out on their title winning bets.

But this punter is staying strong.

And he doesn’t even support Leicester!


Nathaniel Wessel stuck 60p on the Foxes “for a laugh”.

And now he could win £3,000.

“I’ve never followed Leicester – I’m a Brighton fan,” he admits.

“I considered putting some money on them but with odds of 16-1 it didn’t really seem worth it.

“I wasn’t planning on putting 60p on anything, I just thought let’s back an outsider for a laugh.”

A string of Leicester fans have cashed out in recent weeks.

And Nathaniel says the Foxes’ tough run-in is making him nervous.

“If the odds get really good I might take the money,” he told the BBC.

“But I’m only losing 60p if I don’t win anything. What can you get for 60p?”

Stay strong!
