Leicester City have won football's Premier League title in one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time. 

They started their campaign as 5-thousand to 1 outsiders, after coming close to relegation last season. Actually taking the championship hinged on Tottenham not beating Chelsea - and just a few hours ago those teams drew, sending Leicester fans into a frenzy of celebration. 
Among those in joyful ecstasy was New Zealander Jim Small, a long time Leicester fan, who flew to the city from Christchurch on Saturday.
