PIC: The punter who could win £25,000 if Leicester win the league reveals if he’s considering a cash out

That's a lot of cash

Kevin Beirne

They say fortune favours the brave, and this brave fan could win a f**king fortune.

We all like to talk big about our favourite teams, but there are few of us out there who actually put our money where our mouths are.

This Leicester City fan did just that before the season started,and he could be due a massive payday for it.

Sure, a £5 bet isn’t exactly sticking your neck out there but the rewards for it are massive.

Foxes fan Leigh Herbert backed his beloved Leicester to win the Premier League back in August at odds of 5000/1. That means if Claudio Ranieri’s side maintain their lead at the top of the table, Leigh would be due an eye-watering £25,000 profit.

If we found ourselves in this situation so late in the season, we’d probably just thank the footballing gods that we’d gotten this far and cash out now.

But Leigh is in this until the bitter end. It’s all or nothing.
