The trophy-lifting celebratory pictures that Leicester fans have been waiting for

Updated: 

Champions Leicester finished a remarkable season at the King Power Stadium with a routine win over Everton which barely told the story of the last 12 months.

Bottom for 140 days last season, top since January, this year the Foxes have strolled to the most extraordinary of title successes.

May 7 2015 was no routine day though. Claudio Ranieri was greeted by a festival atmosphere when he arrived on Saturday afternoon. The Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury would have been proud.

After the small matter of a football match (Leicester won 3-1) it was down to the serious business of medals, the all-important trophy and celebrating against a backdrop of fireworks and ticker-tape.
