Media personality, Toke Makinwa, is $20,000 (N7.2m) richer after she placed a bet that France would win the 2018 World Cup and they did.

Toke took to her Twitter handle to share the good news.

She wrote “Thank you, France. I just got 20k richer #Freemoney #Footballbet #USD I will miss the World Cup.”

The referee adjudged that Perisic handled the ball, after viewing replays from VAR and awarded a penalty, which Griezmann tucked away. Paul Pogba stretched France’s lead with a third around the hour mark, before Kylian Mbappe made it 4-1 with a vicious drive.
