Wes Morgan must feel proud as punch after captaining Leicester City to the Premier League title.
The 32-year-old, who signed for the Foxes in 2012, will lift the Premier League trophy at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening in what he admits will be the proudest moment of his life.
Morgan, as the club’s skipper, has found himself conducting a host of interviews since Leicester were crowned champions of England on Monday night - but, for his troubles, he almost got a ball in the head from none other than Jamie Vardy during his latest interview with Leicester’s official website.

Morgan was asked to describe the team unity inside the Leicester camp following the team’s remarkable achievement.
But just as he began to speak, a ball whizzed past Morgan’s head. Had he not ducked out the way at the last second, it would have connected.

You have to give full credit not only to Morgan’s reactions but also Vardy’s accuracy.
Even Morgan had to credit the shot, shouting at to the cheeky England international: “Great shot, Vardz!”
Returning to the interview, after being asked how he feels about his teammates, Morgan joked: "Not very good after that ball just nearly hit me in my face then.”
Morgan posted legendary video this week
Morgan posted a fantastic video of himself being dragged along Vardy’s kitchen floor following Eden Hazard’s equalising goal against Tottenham on Monday night.
Morgan can't wait for Saturday
The morning after the night before, the Jamaica international told BBC Sport: "I can't wait to get my hands on the trophy. I’ve never known a spirit like the one between these boys.
"Everyone's worked so hard for this. Nobody believed we could do it, but here we are, Premier League champions and deservedly so.
"People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong."
