This picture was sent in by Melton Times reader Leona Miles who thinks her Melton grandad Basil Melnyckyj (90) is a dead ringer for Leicester City Football Club manager Claudio Ranieri, pictured above him here.

Leona said: “Like many Leicester City fans he never imagined they would be in for a chance of winning the Premier League. But what I think makes him extra special is that he looks the spitting image of their manager, Claudio Ranieri!”
