And after watching Claudio Ranieri and their heroes hoist the trophy once more thousands partied into the night.

Streets across the city were packed with jubilant fans as they toasted the Foxes' fairytale 5000/1 title triumph.

Fans had earlier gathered to listen to the thoughts of the likes of Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri.

Highlights of the season's most memorable moments were broadcast across big screens for the masses to watch, as every goal was once again celebrated.

England forward Vardy said on Sky Sports News: "Look at it - it is carnage.
"I heard a little rumour this morning that we're expecting 250,000 people. Look what it means to them all. All the shops are shut, everyone's hanging out their windows, people are stood on the roofs.

"It's brilliant, what a day.

"It's been an unbelievable achievement. I'll wait until it does sink in and then I think I'll have a few days to myself."
The Foxes, ranked as 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the season, secured the first title in the club's 132-year history at the end of a quite remarkable campaign, finishing 10 points ahead of Arsenal

Manager Ranieri also paid tribute to the supporters who turned the city blue.

The Italian said: "It is unbelievable. All the city's here, it's something special. A lot of people happy, I'm very, very glad.

"Thank you to all the people."

Foxes captain Wes Morgan reflected on an "unbelievable season" for everyone connected with the east midlands club.
Speaking on the stage at Victoria Park, the defender said: "What we have achieved this season is fantastic. Everyone involved with Leicester has contributed to it and you cannot take that away from us."

Morgan sees no reason why the Foxes cannot meet the challenges of next season head on.

He added: "(The Champions League) is unknown territory for the boys, but we are confident we will put on our best show and are looking forward to it."
