Most eyes would have been firmly fixed on the announcement of Roy Hodgson's England squad ahead of Euro 2016 on Monday, but it's safe to say that the people of Leicester were focusing on something different. 

Indeed, an incredible 240,000 people lined the streets to watch the Foxes parade the Premier League title on an open top bus. 

Leicester, of course, secured the prestigious honour after starting the season as 5,000/1 rank outsiders.

It was one of the most incredible achievements English football has ever seen and Leicester City fans appeared to enjoy every moment of their side's remarkable campaign. 

Manager Ranieri insisted that the incredible attendance was due to the fact that his team played with heart and soul during their title-winning season. 

Ranieri has his say 

As per BBC Sport, the Italian stated: "I think this [the crowd] is because the team won but also they played with the heart, with the soul and I think the people understand this."

There were a number of highlights during the day - rock band Kasabian, who formed in Leicester back in 1997, performed in front of the mass crowd - but one moment involving Jamie Vardy was particularly amusing. 

The England international, who was selected in Hodgson's squad ahead of this summer's tournament in France, was handed the opportunity to watch his wonderful goal against Liverpool. 

The strike against the Merseyside outfit won Vardy the club's goal of the season award and it's clear that he certainly enjoyed watching it with Leicester City fans...

As you can see in the video below, Vardy celebrated the goal humorously, while fans of the club cheered as the ball flew past Reds 'keeper Simon Mignolet. 

That goal 

Anyway, we're sure you will want to see Vardy's brilliant strike against Liverpool once again...

How many goals will Vardy score at Euro 2016? Have your say below!
