Lineker 2/1 to wear blue underpants on Match of the Day
Leading bookmaker Coral has started betting on the colour of Gary Lineker’s pants when he presents Match of the Day wearing nothing but his underwear, and make blue the 2/1 favourite.
YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I'll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.

Last December Lineker promised that he would present Match Of The Day in nothing but his pants if Leicester City won the Premier League and his BBC bosses subsequently confirmed that they would allow him to do so should Leicester prevail.
Coral is offering 3/1 on plain black underpants, 5/1 on red, 6/1 on white and 10/1 on pink, while you can get 33/1 about polkadots.
Met Claudio Ranieri after the game. He said "Gary, I don't want to see you do MOTD in your pants." Yes you do, Claudio.

“Millions of people will be tuning in to watch Gary Lineker present Match of The Day in his underpants and betting turnover on the colour of his grundies could go ballistic. One thing’s for sure, we won’t be offering 5,000/1 about any colour or style, not even Gary wearing a pink mankini”, said Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman.
Will he, won't he? @GaryLineker to wear blue underpants on MOTD – 2/1!
3/1 – black
5/1 – red
6/1 – white
10/1 – pink
33/1 – polkadots

“Leicester City winning the Premier League has costs Coral over two million pounds so betting on the colour of Gary Lineker’s undies is one first small step on our road to try and recoup those losses”, added Clare.
