What could be better than having your team Leicester City shock the sports world and win the Premier League? Winning a bet on them to finish as champions of the league that was given to you as a joke. That's what happened to a medical secretary just outside Leicester named Mandy Clarke, according to Sky Sports.

Clarke, who has season tickets to see the Foxes, had a 10 pound bet ($14), thanks to the 5000-to-1 odds, result in a 50,000 pound ($72,480) pay out.  

According to surgeon Simon Tordoff who works with Clarke, a man gave Clarke the ticket, saying "it's going to all be different this year," adding that it was a joke and made everyone who heard it laugh.

Nobody is laughing now.

"The money is an ubelievable amount for me. It is a life-changing ammount," Clarke said 

"Leicester City, Leicester City have won. I can't believe it."

She refused to cash in early and left the ticket hidden in her office all season. Leicester clinched the league on Monday, and her life changed. What a wild way to win a monster bet. I sure hope she is splitting it with the guy who gave it to her. 

"It was all just a joke," Clarke said.

That's my kind of joke. Should I put some cash on Leganes to win La Liga next year?
