Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri toasted his club's Premier League title victory with a glass of champagne on 5 May. At his first press conference since the Foxes sealed their league victory, when Chelsea drew 2-2 with Tottenham Hotspur on 2 May, Ranieri held a flute up to media members thatgathered to applaud him and his team.

The result at Stamford Bridge means Leicester City, who were given odds of 5,000-1 at the start of the season, are the champions of England for the first time in the club's history. Tottenham trail the Foxes by 7 points with two games to go.

Manager Claudio Ranieri did not attend the players' party on the 2 May, instead flying back to Italy to take his mother for lunch, before returning to England in time to watch the match on TV at home.
