When Andrea Bocelli Sang Nessun Dorma To Celebrate Leicester City Winning The League

To mark Claudio Ranieri's 68th birthday, we take a look back at the spine-tingling moment when opera legend Andrea Bocelli serenaded the Italian manager.

In 2016, Leicester City held a party after winning the Premier League title and Bocelli treated the King Power Stadium to a special show.

Then telling fans: "We are the champions because you pushed this club so much. Thank you so much. I love you."

And how could we forget that infamous video of Christian Fuchs and co celebrating in Jamie Vardy's living room.
