Did you know that a Pigeon could make you a millionaire?

Pigeon Racing is a popular sport among the elite in China. That has made UK resident Joel Verschoot a millionaire.

Dubbed the ‘Lewis Hamilton of the skies’, 5 year old Armando, the Belgian racing bird was snapped by a Chinese buyer for a record amount of USD 1.65 million in an online auction.

Racing pigeons can reach the speed of above 80km/h (more than 50mph) over 1,000 kilometre distances.
