Leicester City have won the Premier League title in one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.

Second placed Tottenham's 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Monday meant they could no longer catch Leicester at the top of the table.

Closest challengers Spurs, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and last year's champions Chelsea, have all failed to match the Foxes' consistency across the season.

It is the first time Leicester have won English football's top title in the club's 132 year history. The Foxes have also qualified for next season's Champions League group stages for the first time.

Even Prime MinisterDavid Cameron passed on his congratulations, saying it was "an extraordinary, thoroughly deserved, Premier League title".

Leicester's story is symbolised by 29-year-old striker Jamie Vardy. Released by Sheffield Wednesday at 16 for being too small, he rose through non-league football until Leicester paid Fleetwood Town £1 million for him in 2012.

He is now an England international, second in the Premier League's scoring charts this season and was named the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year on Monday.

Only 14 players have made more than a dozen league appearances and Ranieri's preferred starting 11 cost an estimated £22 million - that's 10 times less than what is arguably big-spending Manchester City's first-choice line-up.
