The Premier League world was very focused on the eSports world on Tuesday, though there was room for a birthday celebration for a Wolves star and an admirable move from Scotland and England internationals.

James Maddison saw his ePremier League Invitational match versus Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson postponed, but he still got stuck into a game.

On the flip side: Hamza Choudhury lost a bet, and boy is the outcome hilarious.

The Leicester City back made a video game bet with Maddison that did not go in the player’s favor.

The payout is just incredible.

“Little boys make big mistakes and I’m a little boy who made the mistake of asking Madders for a rematch,” Choudhury said.

I mean, honestly, this could swing the Maddison versus Jack Grealish debate in favor of the Foxes star. I don’t make the rules.

Tuesday is the birthday of a North American superstar.

We’re talking about Wolves center forward Raul Jimenez, who was absolutely loving his 29th birthday.

The El Tri star issued a big thank you at the end of the day and also went on a bit of an RT fest to amplify those wishing him the best (including an interesting aged photo with teammate Jonny Otto).
