Leicester celebrated the greatest day in their 132-year history in style as the newly crowned Premier League champions comprehensively beat Everton before lifting the trophy.
Claudio Ranieri’s men this season produced one of the most remarkable feats in sporting history, going from supposed relegation fodder and 5,000-1 outsiders to win the league for the first time with two matches to spare.
There was a magical atmosphere around the King Power Stadium for the final home match of a campaign to cherish, with Leicester winning their title party 3-1 as Roberto Martinez’s side were completely overrun.
The only frustration could have been Vardy missing out on a hat trick when he fired over a second penalty. Vardy scored after only five minutes and then in the 65th minute to take his club-leading tally to 24 goals.
The scorer of the second goal was lifelong Leicester midfielder Andy King, who has won the third, second and now top-tier titles as the club has climbed through the divisions.
