A Grandad Just Won £125,000 By Betting His Infant Grandson Would Play For Wales One Day

This is outrageously cute.

This is a lovely man called Peter.

When Peter became a grandfather, he placed a £50 bet on his grandson playing football for Wales.

He made the bet at his local William Hill in Wrexham. With the odds at 2,500/1, Peter never thought he'd see that £50 again.

This is Peter's grandson, Harry.

Last Tuesday, Harry made his international debut as a substitute against Belgium.

Peter won £125,000.

"When he came on I had [a] glass of wine," Peter told the BBC. "[I was] a proud granddad first for sure."

Peter has retired and plans on buying Harry a really good Christmas present.
