Betting on football matches can be a cruel experience.

Often is the case that only one team will let you down on an accumulator, denying you a nice sum of money.

And it’s regularly the team that you most expected to win, as well.

The joy of seeing a bold bet come in is unparalleled but the cash-out option often means many fans take their money and run.

And in many cases, that’s a wise move.

But spare a thought for one football fan who may have produced the worst cash-out decision ever.

The punter placed £1 on a 15-fold accumulator, with the bet returning £24,641.22.

But the punter didn’t see the bet through, cashing out early for just £14.32. Nightmare.

The fan shared his woes with his friend, writing: “I’m speechless mate I’m kicking myself.

“I didn’t learn my lesson.. gunna go and crawl into a deep park hole…”

Many football fans were left baffled, with one writing on Twitter: “Why cash out on 14 quid 😂 couldn't even get a freddo for that these days.”

Another added: "At what point did he think casing out for FOURTEEN POUNDS was a good idea?"

Sometimes just a little bit of faith can go a long way.

No doubt next time the punter will not be cashing out early.
