Leicester players celebrate winning the Premier League

Leicester's players reacted with wild celebrations when it was confirmed they had won the Premier League title.

The players had gathered to watch Tottenham's game against Chelsea which Spurs needed to win to keep the title race alive.

After Tottenham took a 2-0 lead it seemed as though Leicester would have to wait, however goals from Gary Cahill and then Eden Hazard saw the game end 2-2 and Leicester win the title.

Some members of the Leicester team shared videos of the moment they saw the full-time whistle blown at Stamford Bridge and predictably the scenes were wild.

Their manager Claudio Ranieri was not among them, with the Italian coach instead returning from his homeland after visiting his mother.

“Tomorrow (Monday) night I am on a flight,” Ranieri explained. “Now I go back to Italy and I come back at the same time of the match, so I will be the last man in England to know the result.

“I want to meet my mother. She is 96 years old and I like to go to have lunch with her."

Leicester will recieve the Premier League trophy after their final home match which is against Everton this weekend.
