Dynamo, the magician that we’ve seen successfully reduce Nemanja Vidic (among several other footballers) to a bubbling puddle of bamboozle juice, has won a 10,000/1 bet by correctly predicting Spain’s run from the Euro 2012 quarter-finals through to the winners’ podium.
Appearing on This Morning a fortnight ago, Dynamo placed a £1 accumulator on the outcome of the knockout stages – even going as far as including which teams would advance via penalties, sealed the slip in an envelope and left it with the ITV production crew – returning two weeks later for the big unveil.
Turns out the tricksy bugger somehow got everything spot on – even Spain’s winning margin in the final itself.
The betting company, Paddy Power (who, it must be said, have done pretty well out of Euro 2012) have confirmed that the bet was placed in London on June 21st and that the £10,000 winnings are yet to be collected – with Dynamo announcing that the whole lot will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
We’ve got no idea how he did or even if he did it at all (there’s a definite whiff of ‘PR stunt’ about it), but the bottom line is that £10,000 is going to charity as a result, so the cynicism can take a back seat for now.
