Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has tweeted his thanks after becoming the first player in Premier League history to score 11 goals in 11 consecutive matches.

Last week he equalled Ruud Van Nistelrooy's record which had stood for 12 years after he scored in 10 consecutive games back in 2003.

The 28-year-old striker has received hundreds of thousands of tweets in praise for his efforts, with Gary Lineker, Ruud van Nistelrooy and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson to name a few.

Next up for Leicester is a trip to Swansea City on Saturday.
