Bookmakers have been accepting some rather unusual bets for the upcoming London Olympic Games.
In amongst the strangest of the bets have been some unusual contenders for the person who will run the final leg with the Olympic torch with candidates such as the Queen coming in at 500-1 odds. Another strange bet concerns the chance that London Mayor Boris Johnson will fall over while carrying the torch and set his hair on fire.
Perhaps the strangest of all bets however is based on the prediction that a UFO will appear above the Olympic stadium on the opening night with odds of 1000-1.
"Would you bet on Queen Elizabeth lighting the Olympic flame? Or a UFO appearing above the opening ceremony? Or maybe on Usain Bolt winning the men's 100 metre race?."
