Leicester City have acheived "the impossible" by winning the English Premier League title after Chelsea drew 2-2 with Tottenham.

In an evening of high drama, the 5,000/1 rank outsiders have achieved a sporting miracle to be crowned Champions of England for the first time in their history.

Leicester players gathered at Jamie Vardy's house in Melton Mowbray to watch the match, and reacted in jubilation when the final whistle blew.

Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri didn't watch the pivotal Chelsea-Spurs game, choosing instead to travel to Italy to have dinner with his mother, who is 96 years old. 

Remarkably, this is the first major league title of the veteran Italian's career, despite managing many leading clubs in the European game. This sweetest and most unexpected success is a wonderful reposte to many leading pundits who were apathetic at his appointment earlier this season.

Ranieri has won the Premier League title and many admirers

Joyous Leicester City fans home and away celebrated wildly, unable to contain their emotion, as their wonderful team defied all conventional footballing wisdom to create the greatest moment in their 132 year history.

Good things come to those who wait? (PA)

What happens now? No one knows - but such questions are best left for another day.

For this evening belongs to a proud town from the East Midlands, a gentleman amongst managers, his fantastic team of Foxes, and of course all the footballing fans who dared to dream.
