Leicester's players and management staff arrived for training this morning with a few sore heads certain to be among them.

The Foxes players spent yesterday evening at Jamie Vardy's house where they watched Tottenham draw 2-2 with Chelsea, a result that crowned Leicester as champions.

Video footage from the party showed the players reacting ecstatically when the full-time whistle went at Stamford Bridge and the revelry was expected to continue long into the night.

However the players had to report for training this morning and a first meeting with Claudio Ranieri, who did not attend the party because he had been visiting his 96-year-old mother in his native Italy.

Leicester tweeted an image of Ranieri arriving at the club's training ground car park...

Some of the players were also pictured arriving, among them captain Wes Morgan who was seen shaking hands with Ranieri...

Leicester still have two games to play before the season is over, starting with their final home game of the season which is against Everton on Saturday. The party is set to continue with the Premier League trophy to be handed to the team following that match.

Their season will end with an away game against Chelsea.
