Did you hear? Leicester won the Premier League and received the trophy yesterday.

It was of course one giant party at the King Power Stadium yesterday as the Foxes celebrated their historic triumph with a 3-1 win against Everton in front of a jubilant home crowd.

The day got off to a special start when Italian opera legend Andrea Bocelli belted out a version of Nessun Dorma before revealing that he was wearing a Leicester shirt - and the celebrations didn't stop there.

After two goals from Jamie Vardy and a 33rd minute strike from Andy King, the party continued in Ranieri's post-match press conference, with a little help from defender Christian Fuchs.

Wearing his Premier League winners' medal, the Italian was addressing the assembled media when Kasper Schmeichel placed the Premier League trophy in front of Ranieri, before Fuchs charged in and soaked his manager (and journalists) from head to toe with champagne. You can check out the brilliant moment in the video below.

Ranieri had plenty of reasons to celebrate, aside from his title win. The former Chelsea boss is said to have pocketed a £5 million bonus from winning the league, and will also reportedly take home £100,000 for every position his side finished above 18th.

The Foxes title success was confirmed after a tempestuous 2-2 draw between Tottenham and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Tottenham are in action today against Southampton and will be hoping to seal second place ahead of rivals Arsenal, having seen their title hopes go up in smoke.
