How Twitter Reacted To Leicester City Winning The Premier League


Quite frankly, the impossible happened last night, little Leicester CIty were crowned Premier League champions. Such a feat is alomost impossible to put into words. There were parties on the streets of Leicester, Kasabian blasted out from every street corner, Walkers crisps littering the city and a raucous chant of 'we're all going on a European tour, dilly ding and dilly dong' filled the air.

It wasn't just the East Midlands that was awash with emotion, social media erupted in the moments after Eden Hazard sent the Foxes into dreamland with over an 80% increase in Twitter activity in the UK. Here's how people reacted to the greatest story in modern day sport.

 

Let's start with a bit of video action. Christian Fuchs was well prepared as he watched the final few minutes round Jamie Vardy's house. The Austrian caught the moment the players knew they were champions of England and it is really quite lovely.

 

Jamie Vardy took the opportunity to have a sly dig at England teammate and Tottenham main man Harry Kane. The Spurs player had shared a picture of lions prowling in reference to his side stalking the Foxes. Vardy's response 'won Twitter' as the kids say, and also gave us all the chance to appreciate what a superb film the Lion King is.

 

Ian Stringer has been a Leicester City supporter all his life and was at the Chelsea game for local radio in Leicester. He simply couldn't hold it together as tears flooded down his face at the realisation at what his team had done. It's also worth listening to his conversation with his Dad after the final whistle, it really is quite beautiful.

 

This guy was sure that Chelsea would get a result against bitter rivals Spurs to help Leicester win the Premier League. And what's better is, they did it for RANIeri. You tell us why the last three letters are in lower case.

 

The man behind this success got a lot of love last night too. it really is quite stunning what he has done at the King Power.

 

Gary Lineker has been the media face of this incredible title success and he couldn't contain himself on his Twitter feed, somewhat understandably.

 

Local lads Kasabian scheduled in a gig for the end of May at the King Power. They've timed it rather well, don't you think?

 

Kasper Schemeichel and his father, Peter, became just the second father/son paring to be champions of the Premier League, and it is safe to say Dad is just a little bit proud.

 

We Morgan has been the rock that Ranieri has built this squad on, and what a captain he is. Known for his power and presence in the air. last night he showed he is pretty decent on the deck too.

Leicester City. Champions Of England.
