Leicester’s players gathered in Melton Mowbray this evening, Monday top celebrate winning the Premier League as outgoing champions Chelsea handed them the Barclays Premier League crown.

Jamie Vardy, the newly crowned Football Writers’ Player of the Year, is playing host to his team-mates at his home where they watched Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur.

The match ended in a 2-2 draw handing the Foxes the Premier League title for the first time in the club’s history.

Leicester’s Christian Fuchs tweeted this video showing celebrations inside the house when the equalising goal for Chelsea went in.

Leicester manager Ranieri isn’t there having chosen to fly home to be with his 96-year-old mother, Renata, in Italy. He may be among the last people to know if his side – 5000-1 outsiders at the start of the season – are crowned champions as he was in mid-air when the game is on.

Fans have also gathered outside the Leicester stars Melton Mowbray home to show their joy.

Leicester missed their first chance to claim the title as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United. But the point edged them a little closer to the most unlikely of successes and left Tottenham needing full points from their final games.
