Leicester City fan's brilliant reaction to Jamie Vardy goal goes viral

Published 18 Comments

When Jamie Vardy scored his 20th Premier League goal of the season in Leicester's crucial game against Sunderland on Sunday afternoon, it is safe to say half of the people in the city were jumping for joy.

The goal earned the Foxes their fifth straight win and took them 10 points clear of Tottenham with just five games remaining. They are now the outright favourites for the title and fans cannot contain themselves.

But one fan took his celebrations to another level entirely. It was so mental, in fact, that it is currently going viral on Twitter. The funny thing is, we don't even know his name or even what he looks like.

The game

The first half was as boring as anything as both Leicester and Sunderland sized each other up, but Vardy's incessant running eventually paid off in the 66th minute as he latched onto a lovely through-ball from Danny Drinkwater to bury a curling effort past Vito Mannone.

He would later add a second deep into injury time, taking himself to within one goal of the Premier League's top scorer Harry Kane.
