Leicester City fans will still be pinching themselves after they were crowned Champions of the Premier League after Chelsea and Tottenham played out a draw. It’s a remarkable effort from the Foxes, especially as they were priced up at $5001 before a ball was kicked this season.

We’ve had a look at various corporates to see what ludicrous-sounding events are more likely to happen than Leicester’s title winning season, we’ve highlighted our favourites.

Kanye West winning the Nobel Peace Prize $501

Theodore Roosevelt, Barrack Obama, Desmond Tutu and Kayne West, can you spot the odd one out. The hip-hop star has been priced up at $501 to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Not a week goes by without Kim Kardashian’s husband having a twitter meltdown, but any man who can get 83k RT’s for ‘I miss the old Kayne’, can have a real influence on people. However, we think it might be a while before Kayne joins the likes of Obama.

Bono next Pope $501

The U2 frontman sometimes acts like he’s the pope, but the Irish singer song-writer is still a long way of becoming to main man according to the bookmakers. Does Bono stand a chance? Probably not as the candidate has to be single, still a slightly better chance than U2 releasing a good song in 2016.

Jamie Vardy next Bond $501

Jamie Vardy was certainly having a party when the final whistle was blown at Stamford Bridge to crown his Leicester team champions. The striker has been a vital cog in their rise to the top, even though he achieved that dream, he’s still long way of being the next James Bond.

Hugh Hefner admitting he’s a virgin $1001

Hugh Hefner puts the likes of Shane Warne and Tiger Woods to shame when it comes to womanising. The 90 year old is pictured with beautiful women everywhere he goes, yet one bookmaker still pictures a scenario where Hugh hasn’t lost his cherry. If this is true, it’s a massive waste….

Next Royal Baby being called Adelaide $81

Prince William and Kate Middleton have visited the South Australian city before, and from all accounts enjoyed their time down under. If they go down the bogan route of naming your baby after where it was conceived, this could be a worthy punt.

Prince Harry marrying Cheryl Cole $201

Cheryl Cole looks to have found love in Liam Payne, but the thirty two year old is still $201 to marry Prince Harry. It would make for interesting conversation around the royal dinner table…

Tony Abbott to be Prime Minister before 2017 $151

Tony again? The ex-PM is still regularly in the spotlight, but surely the country would riot if he got close to being Prime Minister again? Fyfe winning the Brownlow $1001

Nathan Fyfe was favourite for the Brownlow but lost ground on his competitors due to a shocking start to the season. Now the current Brownlow holder has been ruled out for the majority of the season with a broken leg, how is this shorter than Leicester winning the league?

Mitchell Pearce winning the Dally M Medal $501

Mitchell Pearce made his return to the NRL this week after his night of dogging, however it’s a little late to make a real crack at the Dally M.
