While there's plenty of people who may have lost out by Donald Trump winning the presidency, there's one Brit who's made himself a small fortune.
Business man John Mappin spent around £20,000 on 33 bets at William Hill bookmakers throughout the duration of the US election.

He said: "Well in truth, it was never about the money. I had been working with an information analysis system for many years and I was analysing the information that was coming out of America when Mr Trump announced for presidency.
"And I knew within a few hours that he was going to win, I was absolutely certain."
Mappin described Trump running for office and him placing a bet as a 'humanitarian effort'.
He said: "I suppose really who I have to thank for this is Mr Trump himself himself, I mean, I just think he's done the most incredibly noble action.
"I mean, he took so much incoming flack for a year and a half and he has done a service to this world, in my view. It's historic. I don't think anything has happened in America like this since 1776."
"I've always known that you can be friends with Russians and I think it heralds a whole new area of peace in the world."
