A talented six-year-old from Northampton defied the odds to win a bet with his dad – when he kicked a rugby ball into a basketball hoop.
West Hunsbury youngster Oscar Herbert has already proved himself a bit a dab hand from a dead-ball situation as a player for Bugbrooke badgers Under 7s.
Mr Herbert, 41, who filmed the incredible feat, said: ‘It was so surreal and I couldn’t believe what I had witnessed to be honest.
‘I said tongue in cheek: “If you get it in the basketball ring I’ll give you ten pounds”, and the second attempt, in it went.
‘I simply couldn’t believe my eyes, I thought I was dreaming and had to pinch myself.
‘I will never forget this as long as I live, and I have learned my lesson and won’t be challenging for money again.’
