Leicester City were 5000-1 outsiders to win the Premier League last August. But here they are in May, about to lift the trophy and become legends in their own right. Nothing, and we mean nothing, is impossible anymore. David Beckham and Bono can start dreaming again…    

The unbelievable is reality. Leicester City are the Premier League champions! Bookies around the world are digging deep into their pockets right now after the team started the season as 5000-1 outsiders. The chances of Leicester winning the league were the same as Christmas Day being the warmest of the year or proving that the Yeti exists!  

Even more surprising however, are the things that were seen as more likely to happen than the underdogs winning the league.
