England nearly cost Mike, of Bradford, West Yorks, the prize after he backed them to beat Germany in South Africa.

But by the time of the final, he and one other person were level after calling 35 of the 63 matches. And business graduate Mike correctly had Spain down to win, while his rival had gone for Holland.

He said: "I was speechless when I learned I'd won. I just wish England could have performed as well as I did."
