The Gambling Commission have launched an investigation on Sutton United reserve keeper Wayne Shaw for his pie eating stunt on the bench when his side hosted Arsenal on Monday night.

Before Monday’s game, a bookmaker offered odds of 8-1 that Sutton reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw would eat a pie on camera during the match.

Shaw was seen eating a pie on camera at the 83rd minute of the game.

The Gambling Commission said it’s investigating whether there was a breach of betting regulations during the game.

Sun Bets, who sponsored the club on Monday for the fifth-round tie, tweeted it had paid out a “five-figure sum” to one punter who had bet on Shaw to eat the pie.
