about a man whose futures bet cashed in large for a local charity in England. While he isn't around to see it perhaps he's smiling somewhere...
In 2003 Nick Newlife, from Oxfordshire, made a wager of £1,520, at odds of 66/1, that the Swiss tennis star would win seven Wimbledon titles by 2019.
Mr Newlife died in 2009 but had left the betting slip to Oxfam in his will...
Andrew Barton, from Oxfam, told BBC Radio 5 live that it had been a difficult match to watch because his loyalties were split.
"It's just so unfortunate that he nailed it against Andy Murray," he said.
"I was just sitting there watching the tennis and I kept finding myself calling for Murray, particularly in that long game in the third set.
"And then my head is telling me: Andrew, remember Oxfam gets the money if Federer wins."
William Hill said it had already paid out £16,750 to Oxfam from another bet placed by Mr Newlife, of £250 at 66/1, that Federer would win 14 Grand Slam events.
