Jamie Vardy trolls Harry Kane and Spurs with perfect tweet following title win

Jamie Vardy is having a party but he also found time to log on to Twitter following Leicester City's remarkable, 5000-1 title win last night.

A couple of weeks ago, Tottenham's Harry Kane shared a picture of a pride of lions on social media - the obvious analogy being that Spurs were hunting down Leicester in the race for the Premier League.

Vardy hosted his Leicester team-mates in his home to watch last night's match between Chelsea and Tottenham and while most of the Foxes stars shared their jubilation with colourful phrases on social media, Vardy took the more simplistic yet perfect option as he uploaded a picture of Lion King Mufasa.

Spurs needed to end their 26-year wait for victory at Stamford Bridge to have any hope of overhauling the Foxes and were 2-0 ahead at half-time through goals from Harry Kane, with his 25th league goal of the season, and Son Heung-min.

Gary Cahill netted and substitute Eden Hazard belatedly rediscovered his blistering form of last season with the goal which earned a 2-2 draw, denied Spurs and saw Leicester crowned champions.

Striker Kane wrote on Twitter: "I'm so proud of this team and club. We put it all on the line but unfortunately it just wasn't enough. We learn and come back stronger!

"Congratulations to Leicester on what they achieved. Finally thanks to all the fans! Let's finish the season strong now!"

Spurs boss Pochettino, who now wants to seal second place, said: "I want to congratulate Leicester Football Club, Claudio Ranieri, all the players.

"It's not the right moment to analyse the game. Our players are feeling very disappointed and sad now, but this is a good feeling. It's a feeling we need to feel and for the future.

"We're the youngest squad in the Premier League and we're in a position that is fantastic."
