A Norwegian football fan has scooped a cool £500 after betting on Luis Suarez to bite somebody at the World Cup in Brazil.
Suarez has twice been spotted biting opponents in recent years, so the punter thought hed put £3 on the striker to take a munch out of somebody at Brazil 2014.
And low and behold, towards the end of Uruguays clash with Italy, he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini triggering the bookmaker to pay out.
With odds of 175/1, it was a pretty amazing outcome, despite Suarezs reliability for biting his rivals.
See above for the betting slip, all numbers are in Norwegian krone.
And those Norwegians know all about biting, especially moose bites.
If I were an opponent of this animal and he ever bit me, I would make certain he had no teeth left to bite ANYONE or anything again. He would have to “cut all the corn off the cob” in order to eat.
It was obviously a language translation problem that started when he thought he was playing against Nippon.
It all seams so obvious now.
Ahh prop bets, one of the great traditions of sport.
