Skeptic News: Punter angry over Olympic UFO bet

An angry punter refused payment on a wild 1000/1 bet on a UFO flying over the Olympics Opening Ceremony is demanding answers.

Kevin Coakley is still waiting for his £1,000 winnings after placing the £1 wager on Friday and claims there is video evidence of a UFO above the Olympic Stadium taken from news reports of London 2012’s big opening night.

The former chauffeur, who made the bet at his local branch of William Hill, is in despair as bookmakers have told him they are waiting for official confirmation from Prime Minister David Cameron of any Olympic extraterrestrial activity.

After missing the showpiece ceremony on Friday night, Mr Coakley checked online to see if any of the estimated billion people who watched the ceremony around the world had spotted anything unusual.

To his surprise, the 44-year-old clicked into an internet furore about a flying saucer apparently hovering over the Olympic Park – as he had predicted. But on heading back to the bookies to claim his prize, Mr Coakley, of Ely, Cardiff, was refused payment and told that he had to wait for an official explanation from either Mr Cameron or US President Barack Obama.
