It's one of the greatest underdog stories in sport -- Leicester City's run to the English Premier League title in 2016.

Leicester had fired manager Nigel Pearson in June and entered the season as a 5,000-1 long shot.

Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri replaced Pearson, and the move paid instant dividends.

Striker Jamie Vardy set a Premier League record of 13 goals over 11 consecutive matches from August to November.

Leicester shocked football by going to the top of the table in November, a full year after finding itself at the bottom of the league.

It stayed in contention throughout December and from mid January stayed clear, finally clinching a remarkable title following a 2-2 draw between Tottenham and Chelsea on May 2.

"It was pure happiness," Christian Fuchs told CNN in the aftermath of the miraculous achievement.
