Two former JFS pupils, who set up a sports website from their bedroom, have sold it for £2.4 million.
When Scott Hurst set up RealSport with his friend Roei Samuel he was unsure whether it would take off.
But it grew to have more than ten million unique users, a team of full-time staff and thousands of contributors from more than 25 countries.
The site has now been acquired by Gfinity, an entertainment firm specialising in e-sports. Mr Hurst, 24, who left school after his GCSEs, said he was going to celebrate by taking his mum and dad on holiday to Israel.
“Apart from that, I don’t know what I will do with the money,” he added.“I know I don’t have a student loan to pay off, that’s for sure.”
