Grandad retires early after winning bet on Harry

Harry Wilson's grandfather says he has retired a year early - as of today - after winning £125,000 when Harry made his Wales debut.

Pete Edwards placed a £50 bet, at odds of 2500/1, when Harry was just 18 months old.

He told our reporter Lorna Prichard that even he was surprised at how quickly Harry was picked to play for his country.

The 16-year-old winger came on against Belgium, becoming Wales' youngest ever player.

Harry kept hold of his shirt from last night, rather than swap it with a Belgium player, and took it round to give to his grandparents this morning.
