Liam Fox is the rank outsider to be named as the next leader of the World Trade Organisation, so say our traders.

With the UK set to nominate Fox as a candidate, we’ve installed him as a 33/1 shot in the betting to replace Roberto Azevedo as director-general.

That puts the former Secretary of State for International Trade some way down the list of potential front-runners, which is headed by Kenya’s Amina Mohamed at 6/4.

Nigerian candidate Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala comes next at 3/1 before Abdel-Hamid Mamdouh of Egypt at 6/1.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “As far as the odds are concerned it’s not looking good for Liam Fox and the UK.”
