Leicester City were crowned champions of England for the first time in the club’s 132-year history after nearest challengers Tottenham Hotspur could only manage a 2-2 draw away to Chelsea on Monday.

Second-placed Spurs' failure to beat their London rivals at Stamford Bridge gave Leicester, 5 000/1 rank outsiders in pre-season, an unassailable seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, with only a maximum of six available to Tottenham from their final two league games this season.

First-half goals from England's Harry Kane and South Korea's Son Heung-Min saw Tottenham into a 2-0 lead.

But Chelsea defender Gary Cahill pulled a goal back in the 58th minute before Eden Hazard crushed Tottenham’s dreams of winning a first English top-flight title since 1961 with a superb curling effort just inside the box seven minutes from time. © AFP
