What a week it has been for Leicester City Football Club in England.

On Sunday (May 1), the Foxes came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw away to Manchester United - a result once thought unthinkable for a club more associated with relegation scraps than title chases.

On Monday, English football's greatest fairy tale was confirmed when second-placed Tottenham Hotspur could only manage a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

The result sealed Leicester's first Premier League title and boy, did they celebrate.

Cue pandemonium at striker Jamie Vardy's house, where the team had gathered to watch the Tottenham game.

Defender Christian Fuchs was kind enough to share the jubilation from his point of view.

Usually seen executing last-ditch tackles on the field, captain Wes Morgan was sliding around for a different reason this time.

The ecstasy extended across the city as disbelieving fans took to the streets in the spirit of #havingaparty.

After a raucous night, the squad returned to training on Tuesday for more champagne-popping and questionable dancing.

Former Manchester United youth midfielder Danny Drinkwater and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel - whose father Peter won five league titles with United - were still coming to terms with their team's achievement.

There was even time for Vardy to meet his doppelganger.

After Tuesday's training session, the club's Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha treated manager Claudio Ranieri and his team to a well-deserved feast at a local Italian restaurant. They were mobbed outside by a large group of supporters.

The Foxes have been a joy to watch on and off the field. Ranieri himself has led the way with quirky press conferences that have become Internet gold.

On Thursday, the Italian declared himself the "Thinkerman" (he was once known as the "Tinkerman" for constantly shuffling his line-ups) after toasting champagne with gathered journalists.

Later, Leicester's vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha reflected on a remarkable campaign.

The moment that Leicester fans (and the footballing world) were waiting for finally arrived on Saturday. Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli kicked off the pre-match celebrations, which was followed by an inconsequential 3-1 win over Everton.

It was then time for Morgan & Ranieri to lift the Premier League trophy.

But the party did not end there.
