Leicester City players have spent the day celebrating their Premier League triumph.

After Jamie Vardy’s house party last night - which no doubt went long into the night - the players slowly made their way to the training ground.

But there was no training today.

The champions spent the day having lunch and taking pictures to celebrate their incredible achievement.

But nobody envies the job of their cameraman today. Trying to get the perfect shot of the celebrations must be tough. The players just want to have a laugh while you’re trying your hardest to control them.

Cheeky nutmeg

With the players being deprived of playing football today, it’s no wonder that they want to have a little kick around. So when Jamie Vardy saw an empty plastic bottle on the floor, he decides to have some fun.

He flicks the ball through the legs of the unsuspecting cameraman into the path of defender Marcin Wasilewski who repeats the trick.

But they weren’t finished there. Jamie Vardy cheekily flicks it back through his legs while the cameraman attempts to take his ‘money-shot.’

But the best part about it is the striker's reaction as he looks absolutely chuffed with his efforts.

It’s hardly surprising that Vardy just wants to play football. The striker has missed the previous two matches following his red card against West Ham and was given an extra-match ban for his reaction to referee Jon Moss.


However, the 29-year-old, who has scored 22 goals in the Premier League campaign will return for the Foxes for their home match against Everton this weekend. Regardless of the result, Vardy and his teammates will lift the Premier League trophy at the end of the match.

While Vardy is messing around with plastic bottles, his girlfriend will likely be cleaning their house. The England international decided to invite the entire Leicester squad round his house to watch Chelsea hold Tottenham to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The result handed Claudio Ranieri’s side the title and sparked wild celebrations in the Vardy household. There was no doubt a few hangovers this morning considering the scenes we saw when the final whistle blew at Stamford Bridge.

Vardy's rise

While Leicester’s story is pretty incredible, the rise of their star striker is equally remarkable.

Vardy was turning out for FC Halifax five years ago before moving to Fleetwood Town in 2011.

After just one season at the League One club, he was signed by Leicester for £1 million - a non-league record.

Four goals in 26 appearances in his first campaign in the Championship did little to excite the fans but he helped the club earn promotion the following season with 16 league goals.

He only managed five in 34 as Leicester miraculously avoided relegation one year ago but he’s notched 22 in the same amount of games this time around to help his side to the title and guarantee a place in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad.
