Santos Shocker: Nobel Peace Prize Proves Winner For Punters

The decision to give Juan Manuel Santos the Nobel Prize has come as a shock to bookmakers William Hill who had pushed his price out from 7/2 to 5/1 after the country rejected his peace deal. “Mr Santos was extremely popular with our customers until his peace deal was rejected by the Colombian general public and we have lost a small fortune,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
