Leicester hospitals urge fans to avoid A&E after Foxes' Premier League title win

It looks like the people of Leicester have been enjoying their team's historic Premier League success a little too much.

The Foxes became just the sixth team to win the title having started the season as 5000/1 outsiders, and there was jubilant scenes across the city leading up to the game against Everton at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester's players got the party started at Jamie Vardy's house on Monday night when Tottenham's 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge confirmed their status as champions, and there were a few sore heads on Tuesday morning.

Now it seems as though the club's fans have followed suit and got a little carried away following the 3-1 win against Everton and subsequent celebrations - judging by a tweet from the group that runs three hospitals in the area. 

@Leic_hospital have urged anyone who doesn't require urgent medical attention to avoid heading to A&E or calling 911 because they are so overwhelmed with football fans having reported twice more patients than usual.

They wrote: "@Leic_hospital is feeling the effect of the @LCFC game yesterday. If you don't need to come to A&E please don't. Call NHS111 for advice/care."

Leicester fans have every right to celebrate after watching their side make Premier League history. Having narrowly avoided relegation last season, Claudio Ranieri guided his side to the top of the table at the turn of the year and have been there ever since.

"The people are unbelievable, thank you to them because they have been behind us for the whole season," the Italian said, after his players had stormed his post-match press conference and soaked him in champagne.

"I think it was an amazing moment for me because I'm not the youngest, but there is another test now. When you lift something special, when you're champions of England, the Premier League."Something special for everybody, especially for me. I won some cups. In England I lose in the final, in Spain, in Italy, but to lift the trophy here is fantastic."

Do you think Leicester will be able to defend their title next season?
