The Panama Papers show how some of the world's richest people hide assets in shell companies to avoid paying taxes. Following the stepping aside of Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power on Wednesday began taking bets on who might be the next world leader to leave office as a result of leaks related to offshore accounts.

The front-runner is Mauricio Macri, Argentina’s president, followed by Pakistan's President Nawaz Sharif, and Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. 

“Who needs the Grand National when you’ve got the Panama Papers to punt on?” the firm said in a statement. 

Feilim Mac An Iomaire, a Paddy Power representative, said bets were “yet to be set alight, so far we've taken €133 ($188). The biggest single bet is £35 on Nawaz Sharif at 10/1.”

He said the market was only open for 6 hours Wednesday. It might improve. 

Here is the list from Paddy Power:

8/1         Mauricio Macri (Argentina)

10/1       Nawaz Sharif (Pakistan)

12/1       Petro Poroshenko (Ukraine)

20/1       David Cameron (United Kingdom)

33/1       Francois Hollande (France)

33/1       Xi Jinping (China)
