Many of us will never know what it's like to be on the podium for a Premier League trophy presentation.

But thanks to Leicester City's left-back, Christian Fuch, the world was provided with a unique insight into what it's like to lift the Premier League title.

Leicester City were officially presented with the trophy following a resounding 3-1 victory over Everton at the King Power stadium.

The game was preceded by a spine-tingling performance from Italian opera singer, Andrea Bocelli, as the home fans united to pay homage to their title winning heroes.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan was presented with the Premier League trophy after the culmination of the game, and Fuchs was on hand to capture the historic moment with his smart phone.

Fuchs, who arrived at the King Power from Schalke at the start of the season, has become the unofficial chronicler of Leicester City's miraculous season.

On Monday evening, the Austrian defender captured the jubilant scenes from inside Jamie Vardy's house when Leicester officially became champions of England.

The Leicester City players had all gathered at the striker's house to watch Tottenham's clash with Chelsea, where anything but a win for Spurs would see the Foxes crowned as Premier League winners.

After Eden Hazard's late goal had levelled the game up at 2-2, Fuchs and the watching Leicester players broke into manic celebrations on the final whistle at Stamford Bridge.

The now iconic moment has been shared on Twitter 220,000 times.

Christian Fuchs took title-winning celebrations into the Leicester press room after the game, interrupting Claudio Ranieri's post-match press conference to soak the manager in champagne.

As Claudio Ranieri attempted to compose himself, the Italian jokingly scalded the partying pair.

'Tomorrow, training session! Bad lads," laughed Ranieri.
