Leicester City are celebrating the first league title in the club’s 132-year history with thousands of their supporters, Sky Sports reports.

Claudio Ranieri’s side stunned the football world as they stormed to Premier League glory this season, with Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea leaving them 10 points clear of second-placed Arsenal in the final table.

Foxes’ players and staff took an open-top bus tour from Jubilee Square in the city centre to Victoria Park, where they will show off the Premier League trophy – officially presented to them at the King Power Stadium last weekend – before partying with fans and former players of the club.

“It is unbelievable, unbelievable. All of the city is here,” Ranieri said from on board one of the victory parade buses.

“This is something special, a lot of people are happy and I am very glad.

“The team won but they played with heart, soul and the people understood this. I can say only thank you to all the people.”

Leicester’s top scorer Jamie Vardy, who along with Foxes teammate Danny Drinkwater was named in Roy Hodgson’s provisional England squad for Euro 2016, was also overcome with the magnitude of their achievement.

“I heard a little rumour this morning we are expecting 250,000 people. Look what it means to them,” he said.
