When asked by a journalist, how he would cope with favourite Aston Villa relegation, Hollywood star Tom Hanks said he would be OK with it because he had backed Leicester at the beginning of the season.

“You know what I did at the beginning of the season? I put 100 quid on Leicester so I think I’ll do ok,” Hanks said. “You should find somebody you know, somebody local up there who decided to put 25 pounds on their local soccer club, they are going to be millionaires,” he added.

Bookies were giving 5000/1 odds for Leicester to win the Premier League title at the beginning of the season. Now, they will win the league if they win one of the remaining three matches of the season even if Tottenham win all three. After Spurs failed to beat West Brom, bookies are estimating Leicester’s chances to win the title at 1/20.
