Jamie Vardy literally had a party tonight
Claudio Ranieri’s side were crowned England’s champions for the first time in their 132-year history this evening.

LEICESTER’S PLAYERS CELEBRATED their remarkable Premier League title triumph with a party at star striker Jamie Vardy’s house on Monday.

Claudio Ranieri’s side were crowned England’s champions for the first time in their 132-year history after second placed Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Tottenham had taken a two-goal lead by half-time but, with several Foxes players watching nervously at Vardy’s house, Gary Cahill got one back for Chelsea and an 83rd minute equaliser from Eden Hazard completed Leicester’s fairytale success.

Having been photographed arriving for the gathering at Vardy’s house to watch the match on television, Leicester’s newly crowned champions were able to celebrate together once the final whistle blew at Stamford Bridge.

Christian Fuchs, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Shinji Okazaki were all seen driving to Vardy’s Melton Mowbray home, while a number of supporters also gathered outside the gates of the house.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri’s whereabouts were unknown however.
