Every cloud has a silver lining

Out of adversity comes joy. 

A bet placed in 2003 by Nick Newlife, from Oxfordshire, made a wager of £1,520, at odds of 66/1, that Roger Federer would win seven Wimbledon titles by 2019. Mr Newlife died in 2009 but left the betting slip to Oxfam in his will.

Federer’s defeat of Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final means the charity will now collect a payout from William Hill of £101,840.
