LONDRES (AP) — En Gran Bretaña, donde las apuestas son una locura, los corredores han estado ocupados tomando apuestas sobre quién sucederá a Benedicto XVI desde que anunció su retiro anteriormente este mes.

El favorito es el cardenal Cardinal Peter Turkson, de Ghana, quien sería el primer papa africano. Turkson es el favorito de los corredores de apuestas de William Hill, con probabilidades de 5/2, y de Ladrokes, con 11/4. Otros contentientes destacados son los cardenales italianos Angelo Scola y Tarcisio Bertone, y el cardenal canadiense Marc Oullet.

Para los que deseen apostar por los menos favoritos, Ladbrokes le da probabilidades de 500/1 al ex primer ministro británico Tony Blair, católico convertido a la Iglesia Anglicana, y el corredor irlandés Paddy Power ofrece 1,000/1 sobre Bono, el cantante de U2.
