SUTTON UNITED GOALKEEPER WHO ATE A PIE FACES GAMBLING PROBE

Wayne Shaw, the Sutton United goalkeeper who ate a pie on the bench during the club's FA Cup tie against Arsenal, has resigned after the Football Association and Gambling Commission launched an investigation into a potential breach of betting rules.

The 46-year-old, known as the "roly-poly goalie," admitted after the non-league side's 2-0 loss that he knew a bookmaker was offering odds of 8-1 on him being seen eating during the match at Gander Green Lane, which was shown live on BBC One.

With Sun Bets tweeting that they had paid out a "five-figure sum" on the bet, the FA will now launch an inquiry to determine whether Shaw has breached its gambling regulations.

An FA spokesperson said: "We are investigating to establish whether there has been any breach of The FA rules relating to betting."

The news has prompted the National League club to act quickly, with Shaw's resignation being accepted less than 24 hours after the biggest game in the club's history. As well as the club's reserve goalkeeper, he was also part of the coaching team.
