Leicester have upset the biggest odds

One suspects the celebrations will continue throughout the week.

Ranieri’s men will now receive a guard of honour in their remaining two Premier League fixtures against Everton (H) and Chelsea (A).

They will be competing in next season’s Champions League campaign and are apparently the seventh favourites to win the 2016-17 Premier League campaign - at odds of 40/1.

They started this season as 5,000/1 rank outsiders to win the title - but have proved that, in football at least, nothing is impossible.
