Leicester City Wins Premier League Title

The Foxes pull off one of the greatest Cinderella stories in sports history.

The impossible dream has been realized.

Leicester City has clinched the Barclays Premier League title after second-place Tottenham drew with Chelsea on Monday.

The Foxes entered the Premier League season with 5,000-1 odds to win. They will end it as champions.=

Tottenham gave up a 2-0 lead in the match—which included a late goal from Eden Hazard—officially giving Leicester the title. The championship is the first in team history for Leicester, who one-year ago were close to being relegated out of the Premier League.
