Leicester City, a small club from central England that started the season at 5000-1 odds of winning the prestigious English Premier League title,created history by clinching the trophy after Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea in their league clash at StamfordBridge.

And it was only apt that the maiden title triumph was celebrated by its band of euphoric fans, humans, animals alike, -- they celebrated in the pubs, in their homes and lined up the streets by the hundreds.
