British heptathlon star Karla Drew was £50,000 better off last night after correctly predicting the correct outcomes of a number of international football matches last night.

The rising star, who shares the same coach as Jessica Ennis-Hill, posted her slip after her £5 10-match bet came to pass.

As with any accumulator, there was a degree of luck, with Portugal requiring a last-minute goal to defeat Argentina at Old Trafford, while Panama slogged to a draw against Canada.
