The Foxes striker was also pictured holding his Premier League medal while asleep in 2016
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 has been a go-to phrase ever since.
Ten seasons ago Vardy was playing in the Conference for Fleetwood, scoring 31 goals in 36 games to earn himself a move to Leicester in the Championship.
A Premier League title, FA Cup glory and 26 England caps have followed, while there is also talk of Hollywood producers planning a film based on his incredible career path.
The 34-year-old will be hoping for a return to Champions League football next season and to continue his story.
The Foxes face Chelsea again on Tuesday, knowing a win would secure their place in the top four and a spot in the competition they reached the quarter finals of during the 2016/17 campaign.
