The Foxes emerged champions without kicking a ball after Tottenham could only manage a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

The 25kg Premier League trophy, topped by a golden crown, is decorated with blue ribbons for Leicester, and yellow ones to represent the royal house of Thailand, which is the country of club owners King Power.
