"You know what I did at the beginning of the season? I put
100 quid (pounds) on Leicester (City) so I think I'll do okay,"
the actor quipped on Monday at the London premiere of his latest
film “A Hologram for the King.”
"You should find somebody you know, somebody local up there who
decided to put 25 pounds on their local soccer club, they are
going to be millionaires," he added.
Leicester City started the soccer season with odds to win at
5,000-1, but has enjoyed an unexpected rise to become a top
contender, with just three games standing between the team and
its first ever soccer premiereship league title.
