We say lucky in the headline, but really this guy let nothing else sway his belief in his team and stuck £5 on a "what if" bet that has come good.
Ladbrokes today confirmed the legitimacy of a betslip that has been doing the rounds on social media following Leicester City's 3-2 win at Goodison Park, and it means that a Foxes fan by the name of Will Kirwan will be having a very special Christmas indeed.

What a shout.
As if watching the Leicester City team he supports sit at the top of the Premier League at Christmas wasn't enough, Will will now be rewarded with a cool £5,000 for putting his money where his mouth was in August.
What makes this even more ridiculous is the fact that Leicester City were bottom of the Premier League at Christmas last year.
