Leicester City earned more money for their Champions League run last season than Real Madrid did for winning it.

The Foxes received €81.7m for reaching the quarter-finals during their debut campaign in the world's biggest club competition.

Real Madrid were paid €81m after becoming the first team to defend the Champions League.

Runners-up Juventus were the only club to earn more than Leicester after being awarded €110.4m. Arsenal received €64.6m, Manchester City, €50.2m, Tottenham €43.2m and Celtic €31.7m (£28m)

In total, teams taking part in the Champions League shared €1.396bn in UEFA payments.

Manchester United's Europa League triumph saw them paid €44.5m - more than double any other club in last season's second-tier competition.
