An Oxford gambler who spotted the Wimbledon-winning potential of Roger Federer nine years ago and staked a hefty bet on him winning the tournament seven times could help a charity even after his death.
Nick Newlife passed away before being able to see his wager, which could generate £100,000 of winnings, come to fruition.
But kind-hearted Nick left the William Hill bet in his will to Oxfam.
The charity can claim the winnings if Federer gets the additional Wimbledon title
this year, or any year up to 2019.
