Leicester City Wins Premier League Title

The impossible dream has been realized.

Leicester City has clinched the Barclays Premier League title after second-place Tottenham drew with Chelsea on Monday.

The Foxes entered the Premier League season with 5,000-1 odds to win. They will end it as champions.=

Tottenham gave up a 2-0 lead in the match—which included a late goal from Eden Hazard—officially giving Leicester the title. The championship is the first in team history for Leicester, who one-year ago were close to being relegated out of the Premier League.
