They include:

  • Jong-un to remain North Korean leader beyond 2031 – 4/7
  • Jong-un to emigrate to America in his lifetime – 50/1
  • A statue of Donald Trump to be erected in North Korea this year – 66/1
  • Jong-un and Trump to settle their differences over a round of golf – 80/1

Asked about the issue between the two leaders spokesman Paddy Power said: “Let’s hope Little Kim doesn’t spot our markets – else he might go ballistic.

“But I can see the Donald and Kim Jong-un nuking it out on the golf course, given the respective handicaps – and they’re apparently pretty handy at golf, too.”
