Newly-crowned champions Leicester City today lifted the Barclays Premier League trophy in front of a packed King Power Stadium.
It’s a party thousands of people have been waiting their entire lives for – and many still can’t believe it’s taking place at all.
Thousands of Leicester City fans have made their way to the club’s King Power Stadium to celebrate winning the Premier League, after being ranked as 5,000/1 outsiders at the beginning of the season.
Thai billionaire owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has promised fans attending the final home game of the season against Everton a free beer, if they needed any more incentive to get in the mood.
After a pre-match performance from Italian singer Andrea Bocelli, the place was rocking – and the decibel levels hit the roof when Jamie Vardy netted after only five minutes to put Leicester 1-0 up. On the half hour mark Andy King slotted home to double the champions’ lead at half time.
In the second half Vardy scored from a penalty, but was denied a hat-trick when he missed a second kick from the spot.
The heavens opened on the King Power Stadium, but it didn’t dampen the spirits as the fans continued the party after beating Everton 3-1.
