Gary Lineker's son wins fortune with unbelievable World Cup final bet
Gary Lineker's eldest son has shared news of his big win after an insane bet on the World Cup final
George Lineker banked more than £4K after winning an 'unbelievable' seven-fold bet on the World Cup final in Qatar as he shared his success with his followers on Twitter.
Gary Lineker’s eldest son George bagged the big win from a £20.03 stake as Argentina lifted the Jules Rimet trophy after beating France at the Lusail Stadium.
Following extra time, Gonzalo Montiel scored the decisive penalty after a 3-3 draw.
Argentina raced into a two-goal lead after Lionel Messi opened the scoring, before Angel Di Maria added to their lead with a beautifully worked goal.
But France fought back with a sensational hat-trick from Kylian Mbappe.
Following the incredible final, Lineker Jr revealed his £4276.40 win after building an intricate bet for Sunday’s showdown.

He correctly predicted that both Messi and Mbappe would score during the match and that the full time 90-minute score would be 2-2.
Lineker also backed Argentina to lift the trophy after penalties and successfully anticipated that there would be more than one card and over five corners during the match.
Reacting on Twitter after the match, he said “If anyone deserves to win a bet, I think it’s me. Thank you all.”
Argentina's success is Lionel Messi's first in the tournament, with the 35-year-old finally bringing home the trophy that has eluded him throughout his career.
The legendary forward has finally put those demons to bed by following up a 2021 Copa America success with the greatest footballing prize of them all.
Messi told SPORT: "It's crazy that it happened this way.
“I wanted it very much. I knew that God was going to give it to me, I had a feeling that it was going to be this. Now to enjoy."
Ahead of the match there was plenty talk of Messi retiring from international duty but he promptly quashed speculation telling TyC Sports: "No, I'm not gonna retire from the national team.
"I want to keep playing as World Cup champions with Argentina shirt."
