A Ugandan Arsenal supporter has reportedly lost his house in a bet over this weekend's match with Manchester United.

According to Super Sport, which quotes a report in Ugandan newspaper The Observer, Arsenal fan Henry Dhabasani wagered his home against Rashid Yiga's new car...and his wife:

The two put their stake in writing, with local leaders and fans witnessing the deed.

Dhabasani, married to three wives with five children, fainted at the end of the match on realizing Arsenal had lost the game 1–0.

On Monday, several Manchester United fans stormed Dhabasani’s home and threw him and his family out.

Talk about high-stakes gambling.
