Since claiming his incredible prize, the 35-year-old has spent tens of thousands of pounds traveling the world to experience some of the world’s best sporting action, including American football, baseball, football, ice hockey and rugby. After picking up his massive windfall, Evans took a year’s break from pacing the streets as a postman to map out an incredible summer of sport. He will be taking in the tennis at Wimbledon, before rounding off the season in style with a trip to Rio for the Olympic Games. First up, however, is a trip to France to cheer on his beloved Wales as they take on the continent's finest footballing sides at Euro 2016, a trip that has reportedly cost the millionaire £8,000.
The devoted Cardiff City fan had always dreamed of living his current lifestyle long before he landed the massive sum of money. Quoted in the Sun, Evans said: "I always said if I won the lottery I’d spend it on following my favourite teams.” The sports enthusiast particularly enjoys sports from across the pond and lists the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Redskins amongst his favourite teams: “I love American sport so instead of watching it on TV I fly over to see it live.” However, Evans still holds a place in his heart for a game that’s a little closer to home: “I still love my football and I’m devoted to Cardiff City and Wales.”
