Jamie Vardy Drank Desperados, Fell Asleep With Medal On And Got McDonald’s Breakfast After FA Cup Win

Jamie Vardy celebrated Leicester City's FA Cup victory over Chelsea on Saturday in the most Jamie Vardy way possible.

The striker, who became the first footballer ever to play in all 13 rounds of the FA Cup, from the preliminary to the final, was watched by family members including his wife Becky at Wembley.

Afterwards, he was pulled away from a TV interview to get the party started - but of course the celebrations did not end there.

According to The Athletic, the squad largely went their own way after soaking in their triumph at Wembley.

For Vardy, that meant sinking a few Desperados beers in the car while his family drove back home, eventually falling asleep with his winners' medal around his neck, then waking up and grabbing a McDonald's breakfast the day after.

Naturally, he was still back in training that day as a few tequila-flavoured beers and a McMuffin aren't enough to keep the 34-year-old striker down.

Vardy, whose other half wore a jumper bearing the official family motto - "Chat s**t, get banged" - at Wembley, apparently also fell asleep with his 2016 Premier League winners' medal around his neck, so this is clearly a familiar routine.

The Leicester legend, who was still playing non-league football aged 25 and didn't take part in his first Premier League game until he was 27, is famed for his unorthodox health and training regime.

While he's apparently taking better care of himself in recent years, particularly under Brendan Rodgers' management, he has previously shared his affection for port, Red Bull, chewing tobacco and his aversion to lifting weights in the gym (believing it will slow him down).

The Leicester No 9 showed no signs of slowing down on Saturday as, while Youri Tielemans scored the game's only goal with a second-half rocket, Vardy pestered the Chelsea defence and was a menace throughout the 90 minutes.

It appears as though for Vardy, very little has changed - on or off the pitch - as his club's fairytale triumph of 2016 had its follow-up in 2021.
