Perennial underdog Leicester City has won the English Premier League for the first time.
Leicester drew 1-1 with Manchester United on the weekend, but was awaiting the result of the Tottenham-Chelsea contest to see if it had enough points to win the league.
Tottenham and Chelsea drew at two-all, which gave Leicester enough points to take the title.
In the team's 132 year history, the closest it previously got to winning was runner up in 1928-29.
It's a surprise triumph for a team that started the campaign with odds to win of 5,000-1, which the Guardian reported was taken up by 12 punters at betting agency William Hill, including a 39-year-old Leicester carpenter named Leigh Herbert whose £5 bet was now worth £25,000.
The football fairy tale is spreading on social media like wildfire.
Leicester teach a very important lesson. The rich and powerful can be beaten.— Stephen Nolan (@StephenNolan) May 2, 2016
