As time goes on, we’ll all remember that fantastic footage from Jamie Vardy’s house after Leicester City were crowned Premier League champions as much as the footage of Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri lifting the trophy.
The Leicester players all went around Vardy’s house to watch the decisive Premier League fixture between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on television.
However, it turns out the TV didn’t survive the night. Vardy revealed that it broke during the chaotic celebrations. (Scroll down this page to watch the striker explain what happened).

“I had the boys around mine on the Monday night, TV got broke,” Vardy was quoted as saying by the Mirror during Leicester’s end-of-season awards this week. “Luckily that’s been fixed now!
“It was all worth it.”
Vardy won Leicester's Goal of the Season
Vardy picked up Leicester’s Goal of the Season award for his magnificent long-range strike against Liverpool back in February, but the club’s Player of the Season accolade went to Riyad Mahrez.
Mahrez won Leicester's Player of the Season
The Algeria international, who also won the PFA’s Player of the Year award, told Foxes Player HD: “It feels good. It’s good to be voted for from the fans. I want to thank them all and I love all the Leicester fans because they are great supporters. I’m very happy. We just know we’ve done something crazy – something unbelievable.
"For myself first, the goals I scored for the team, all the wins. The Aston Villa win when we were 2-0 down and we won 3-2, and the Manchester City win away.
"The stadium is very amazing. The fans are close to us and I feel very good here to play. I just want to say thank you to all the fans – I hope they support us every year.”
Vardy keen to win Golden Boot award
Vardy, meanwhile, has his sights set on finishing the season with the Premier League’s Golden Boot award.
With one match remaining - against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge - Vardy is level with Sergio Aguero on 24 league goals and one behind Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
Kane will be looking to wrap up the individual accolade with a couple of goals against relegated Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday, although Aguero will also fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
