Leicester City turned up for training on 3 May as Premier League champions, after Tottenham Hotspur's 2-2 draw with Chelsea the night before made their 77 point total unassailable.

Leicester's striker Jamie Vardy hosted a party for players to watch the match at his home. He was seen the next morning climbing into a car to be driven to the ground. Manager Claudio Ranieri did not attend the players' party, 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.

"[My emotion] it was at the maximum. At the maximum level", he told reporters on his arrival at the training ground. "I feel good, you can imagine," he added.

The Italian has had a long career coaching clubs including Napoli, Fiorentina, Juventus, Roma, Inter Milan, Valencia, Monaco and Atletico Madrid. In England he coached at Chelsea but was sacked to make way for Jose Mourinho, and has never won a major title before.

"It means that the job is good," he said, summing up his feelings. "I am very, very happier now because if I won this title at the beginning of my career, now I would have forgot. No, now I am a very old man and I can feel much better."
