WATCH: Former Tottenham striker Mido shaves his head after losing Leicester bet

It isn’t just the bookies that are counting the cost of Leicester City’s miraculous title win.

With reports claiming that bookmakers have been forced to shell out in excess of €31 million to those that backed Claudio Ranieri’s men to win the Premier League, former Tottenham striker Mido was forced to part company with his hair.

Two months ago, the Egyptian predicted that Leicester would buckle under the pressure of the title race’s final weeks and was so confident about this that he vowed to shave his head is he was proven wrong.

The Foxes saw it though, and Mido was forced to bid farewell to his flowing locks live on beIN Sports.

The more cynical readers might wonder what exactly Mido knows about what it takes to win a Premier League title.

In this case the answer would be sweet f*** all.
