Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink says his Leicester counterpart Claudio Ranieri phoned him moments after the final whistle to thank him for helping the Foxes win the title.

The Blues came back to draw 2-2 against Spurs to confirm Leicester as champions on Monday night.

Facts don't lie! A few minutes after the final whistle, after the judo, I got a call from Ranieri.

His voice was trembling a bit. I don't know if he was crying. He said five times thanks.

Vardy voted Footballer of the Year by Football Writers

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy has been voted the 2016 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association.

The England international topped the poll of 290 journalists with 36 per cent of the vote, a clear winner ahead of team-mates Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante.

The 29-year-old striker has scored 24 goals for club and country so far this season as the Foxes close in on what would be a remarkable Barclays Premier League title triumph.

They will be crowned champions should closest rivals Tottenham fail to beat Chelsea on Monday evening.

'Fearless Foxes' walk at Leicester Museum to celebrate the fairytale season

The story of Leicester City’s fairytale season will be told in an exhibition at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery this summer.

The museum has postponed its scheduled summer exhibition, ‘Birds’, to make way for a special display to celebrate the Foxes’ incredible journey from the bottom of the Premier League in March 2015, to their current position at the top of the table.

The unprecedented levels of worldwide interest that it’s generated convinced us to shelve our existing plans and instead produce an exhibition that would tell the story of the club’s meteoric rise.

That decision meant a challenge for staff – with just 45 working days to pull the display together and an urgent call for help to the club’s historian.

While this exhibition won’t be a history of Leicester City Football Club, we hope that it will capture what has been a very special moment in time, however the season eventually turns out.

There will be lots of opportunity for people to add their own comments and reflections, so hopefully the exhibition will grow as it runs through the summer.

– Collections, interpretation and learning manager Matthew Constantine

The free exhibition will be in the main temporary exhibition gallery on the first floor.

With a working title ‘Fearless Foxes’, the exhibition will open at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery on June 4 and will continue until September.

Leicester City’s 2015-16 season is a wonderful chapter in the story of Leicester – and it’s one that will be remembered, and talked about, for generations.

I’m delighted that our flagship museum will host this very special exhibition that will attempt to capture all the emotion of this extraordinary season.

– City Mayor Peter Soulsby
