PUNTERS have started betting on who will be this year's TIME Magazine Person of the Year. has published the current odds, with the #MeToo social movement being the favourite at $2.38.

China's Xi Jinping ($5.60), France's Emmanual Macron ($7.80), and the US Dreamers ($12.25) are next, pipping Donald Trump ($13.50), who famously claimed that TIME had already asked him to be Person of the Year.
