Punter celebrates Germany win
One lucky Sky Bet punter was celebrating Germany's World Cup final victory more than most last night as it landed him more than £83,000.
Mario Gotze's extra-time winner for Germany over Argentina provided the customer with the final leg of a £100 five-fold football accumulator bet.
The customer, from Edinburgh, placed the ante-post acca last August and will have no doubt been on the edge of his seat as the final at the Maracana neared penalties.
Apart from Germany's victory the acca included Wolves to be promoted from Sky Bet League 1, QPR to be promoted from the Sky Bet Championship, Manchester City to win the Premier League and Real Madrid to win the Champions League.
Sky Bet football trader Marc Hodges said: "With the first four legs of the acca all winners back in May it has been a long wait but a worthwhile one for this lucky customer.
"He backed German to lift the trophy back in August and will no doubt been cheering home Gotze's extra-time winner."
