We’ve all heard tales from our mates about heroic football accumulator wins, but this one surely trumps every story you’ve ever been told.

Ladbrokes have confirmed that one extremely lucky punter is now £12,095.94 richer after putting £2 on a ridiculous-looking 20-fold accumulator over this Bank Holiday weekend.

According to the Mirror, an unidentified man from Bolton placed £2.20 on the accumulator, which featured results from across the globe.

He owes Rafa Soares a pint

The bloke in question must have been sweating buckets towards the end of the final match, the Portuguese league clash between Rio Ave and Feirense.

He had the home side to secure the win - and that’s exactly what they did thanks to a goal in injury time by Rafa Soares.

It was only the 21-year-old’s second career top-flight goal.

He’s now owed a pint from a very happy man in Bolton.
