Sport: The title was in the box a few days after the club moved up to the top division without playing themselves.

With their 97 points, nobody can catch up with Leicester at the top of the table in the championship series. The league championship came eight years after the blue shirts sensationally won the Premier League.

As in the 2015/16 season, Vardy has made important contributions along the way. On Monday, he reached 18 league goals.

The first came when, after 36 minutes, he got the ball in the box, turned around and scored in the left corner. Early in the second half, Vardy made it 2-0 with a ball that had just hit the post.

Kasey McAteer headed in Leicester’s third away goal.
