Leicester City have lifted the Premier League trophy following a convincing 3-1 win over Everton at the King Power Stadium.
Wes Morgan, Leicester’s captain, hoisted to the trophy proudly alongside Claudio Ranieri into the air to mark the conclusion of one of football’s most remarkable stories.
The Foxes officially became champions of England following Monday night’s 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge - sparking wild celebrations inside Jamie Vardy’s house - and had been waiting for this special moment for five hectic days.

Vardy put the hosts ahead in the fifth minute, latching on to a cross from Andy King.
The provider then turned goalscorer just after the half-hour mark, before Vardy added his second of the afternoon from the penalty spot in the second half. Kevin Mirallas netted a fine consolation goal for the visitors, but other than Kasper Schmeichel and his defenders nobody inside the King Power seemed particularly concerned and who can blame them?

Vardy could have scored a hat-trick...
Vardy had the chance to complete his hat-trick - and go level with Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot award - when referee Andre Marriner pointed the spot again five minutes later, but he blazed his spot-kick high over the crossbar.
However, that wasn’t enough to sour what was an unforgettable afternoon (which began with a magnificent performance by Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli) for everybody associated with Leicester City - players, staff and, of course, the passionate supporters.
