Cape Town - Leicester City were crowned English Premiership champions on Monday night in one of the greatest stories in football history.

It is Ranieri's first ever league title as a manager, and Leicester's first ever league title in the top flight of English football. 

At the start of the season, Leicester were reportedly 5000/1 to win the Premier League.
