When Jamie Vardy eventually got to sleep after Leicester won the FA Cup for the first time in their history, he made sure he was still in celebratory mood.

The striker was pictured asleep wearing the medal he picked up after the Foxes beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley thanks to a stunning strike from Youri Tielemans.

It was no surprise Vardy was worn out - he became the first player in the competition's history to feature in all 13 rounds across his career, from the preliminary stages right through to the final.

The Foxes striker also fell asleep with his Premier League medal still in his hand in 2016, after a season in which he scored 24 league goals to fire his side to the most unlikely of title triumphs.

There were 21,000 fans inside Wembley for Saturday's final, the biggest crowd since lockdown, as those in attendance created a raucous atmosphere despite the reduced capacity.

One of those in the stands was Vardy's wife Rebekah, wearing a 'chat s*** get banged' hoodie as she watched her husband's side create history.

The Leicester striker's motto went viral during the Foxes' title winning season and been a go-to phrase ever since.
