Late drama in France on Monday night saw one Ladbrokes punter win over £57,000 from a £20 stake.
The online customer backed four teams across Europe to win both halves of their respective matches, although the bet looked to be a loser but for a late penalty for West Ham in the first half of their game against Sheffield United.
While the Hammers, Athletic Bilbao and Roda JC got the job done with relative ease, it looked as though the punter's luck was out, until Toulouse snatched a late goal in the 86th minute of their match against AC Ajaccio in France to go 2-0 up, turning the £20 four-fold into a staggering £57,037.50.
Ladbrokes spokesperson Jessica O'Reilly told FreeTips.com: "It really was a game of two halves for this punter who was left thinking his bet had lost not once, but twice until the late drama ensued, clinching him a cool £57k."
