A Betfred spokesperson told Leicester Mercury : "He said he likes outrageous bets and had one on France beating Argentina in the last World, Cup and won £1,600.
“As Leicester got close to his predicted score he left the lounge to go and watch TV upstairs and his wife wondered what was going on with all the jumping about.
“Leicester have always been a team that bookies are wary of after their 5,000-1 Premier League winning season.
"There’s a lot of confidence around Leicester, they’re the in-form team.
“We believe no-one else in the country had Leicester to win 9-0 and he’s told us he’s going to have the best ever Christmas for him and his family.”
