Volodymyr Zelenskyy is now 7/4 to win the Time Person of the Year award

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has now shortened into 7/4 to win the Time Person of the Year award for 2023 with bookmakers having a full betting market up for the award.

OLBG have looked further at the betting odds with Elon Musk, Zelenskyy and OpenAI CEO and Co-Founder Sam Altman wrapping up the top three of the market with Joe Biden just behind.

The Russia-Ukraine war has entered its 616th Day with Ukraine’s campaign to reclaim occupied lands ramping up in the past week with fresh attacks from Russia expected to happen.

Zelenskyy's actions have seen him remain as one of the most important people in the world currently and that could see him awarded a second consecutive Time Person of the Year award according to Paddy Power.
