UK: Oxfam is �100k better off after Roger Federer defeats Brit Andy Murray at Wimbledon
ROGER Federer’s win over Andy Murray has won more than �100,000 for charity.
A gambler who died three years ago wagered that the Swiss maestro would win seven or more Wimbledon titles, and the star has now achieved that feat.
Nick Newlife, from Oxford, placed �1,520 on odds of 66/1 with Bookmakers William Hill.
He died in 2009, aged 59, leaving his entire estate - including the bet - to Oxfam, which can now collect �101,840. Around 12 per cent of Oxfam’s income is from legacies.
