When Columbus said the world was round people rolled their eyes.
When Nasa claimed that man would one day walk on the moon, critics
scoffed and when Claudio Ranieri dared to dream that his side
could become champions of England the footballing world
laughed in his face. Who is laughing now?
Good morning Kickabout fans. To say it has been a big week
in the world of football would be an under statement.
News of the new Premier League champions has gone global.
Yes, after months of will they won't they?
Leicester City have finally done it. They are officially
champions of England. We will be brating the Foxes
fairytale in a moment. First here is what's coming up
on the rest of today's show. We join the Manchester United first
team as they invite these lucky supporters for a training session.
With Burnley back in the Premier League next season,
these superfans take us behind the scenes at Turf Moor.
And as usual we celebrate your brilliant footie achievements.
But let's face it, there is only one way we can truly kick things off
this week and that's with the remarkable
story of these guys. Yes, Leicester City's Premier League
triumph will go down in history as one of the most
astounding stories in sport. From relegation favourites
at the start of the season to a title winning team. No one saw
this coming back in August! In fact, people were saying
it was more likely that Simon Cowell would become Prime Minister
or Alex Ferguson would win Strictly Come Dancing than Leicester
topping the table! And this guy was so convinced it
wouldn't happen that in December he vowed to host Match Of The Day
in his underwear if his former team won the League!
Well, Gary, these are for you pal. Oh yeah, I didn't want
you to feel left out. They're actually comfortable.
Anyway, the celebrations started on Monday night after Tottenham
drew 2-2 with Chelsea and it was Jamie Vardy
having a party. Here is the moment the players
celebrated at the final whistle.
So a little bit happy then and why not?
And they aren't the only ones. Here is how the rest
of the world reacted to Leicester's remarkable win.
Leicester City defy the odds to win
the Premier League. Yes!
I can't get me head around it. I think it is the biggest sporting
shock in probably sporting history. I can't think of anything that
surpasses it and when it is your team as well,
it is just too extraordinary. Too difficult to put
over in words really. When I watch all the players
together and say heck this is the secret
of the team together. It's amazing.
I never thought I would ever see this.
I've been a Leicester fan for years.
I never thought I'd ever see anything like this
in my entire life. At the start of the season 5,000-1
to win the Premier League. It is just the most incredible
achievement I believe in British sport.
The people love us because they say we are the best.
But we put on the pitch our soul, our heart, our blood.
Everything we live on the pitch. I have been supporting them
for all my life and it is one of those moments that
you cherish to be honest. My mum told me and then I nearly
cried my eyes out because Leicester means so much to me.
# We have won the League. # We know you want to believe us.
# We have won the League. # But we have won the League!
What a week! And could their title win be running
off on the rest of the Leicester? Local snooker player, Mark Selby,
secured his second World Championship on Monday.
Leicester Tigers are hunting for an 11th English rugby union title.
Leicester Riders are British basketball league champions
and Leicester City women have gone the whole season with a 100% record.
Maybe Leeds could look out to Leicester.
Just for a season. But the Foxes aren't the only ones
hitting the headlines. Yes, OK, they have been everywhere you looked
the last few days, but don't forget this lot happened too.
Manchester City failed to reach their first
Champions League final after a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid.
Winners Real will face their neighbours Atletico later this
month, but it was much better news
for Liverpool as they beat Villareal 3-0 at Anfield to reach
the Europa League final. They will face Sevilla with Klopp
hoping to get his hands on the first piece of silverware with the Reds.
In the women's game, Manchester City are six points clear at the top of
the women's Super League one and get this, they haven't conceded a single
goal in the first five League games of 2016. Nice work ladies!
And finally, in League One Wigan Athletic won at Blackpool last
weekend. They are all but champions with a three point lead at the top.
Congratulations. The promotion parties don't stop there as Burnley
are back in the big time. They clinched promotion to the Premier
League on Monday after beating QPR 1-0 at Turf Moor. Well done to the
Clarets. They are already back. Something these two fans are very
happy about. I'm Jack. Welcome to Burnley FC.
We're back in the Premier League. We can't wait. Come on Burnley!
Last year we were relegated from the top division, but this year, we've
had a great run in the Championship. COMMENTATOR: It is another champagne
moment. Burnley are promoted to the Premier League. Our manager is a
legend. He has been at the club four years now and the fans actually love
him. My favourite moment this year has to be when we played back burn
at home and we beat them 1-0. Jack, what was your favourite moment? The
Burnley QPR game. A good experience and I liked the pitch invasion.
COMMENTATOR: Here comes the pitch invasion. Our favourite player is
Andre Gray he scored 22 goals. My favourite player is Sam Vokes. He is
a good all-round player. What do you think about Leicester winning the
Premier League? It is amazing, isn't it? A few years ago they were down
with us in the Championship. Yeah, Leicester have been amazing. I can't
believe they've done it. They're the Premier League champions!
This stadium can fit 22,000 fans in. Me and Isaac are both season ticket
holders. The atmosphere is amazing. Come on, I'll show you my seat over
here. Epic seats, aren't they? You see everything from here. Isaac, if
you look right over there, that's where I sit. It is a good view. A
point for Burnley. My favourite song is the promotion song. It goes
# Up the football League we go. When we get promotion this is what
we'll sing # We love you Sean.
# Sean is king. # So promotion secured, but not yet
the title. That's still all to play for later today as anyone of
Burnley, Middlesbrough or Brighton could finish top of the
championship. Only goal difference separates the Seagulls from second
placed Boro. We asked these young fans to give us their thoughts. I'm
Joseph. I come from Brighton and I'm 11. I'm Thomas and I'm Joseph's
brother and I'm eight and I also come from Brighton. I support
Brighton because that's where me and my mum are from. I support
Middlesbrough because that's where my dad is from. I think the score
will be 2-1 tomorrow? 1-0 to Boro. I predict the score to be 2-1.
Seagulls. Seagulls. We are Brighton. We are Brighton. Super Brighton from
the south. You can get promoted and I will go crazy. Up the Boro. Bruno,
Bruno. My prediction for the Brighton match is 2-0 with jordon
Rhodes scoring. If we get promoted to the Premier League, it will be
amazing and I will be immensely proud of the team who have worked so
hard. If we win the League, it will be the best thing ever. Yes!
We love Brighton. Brighton! Middlesbrough. Brighton! Go on Boro.
# We're going up. # The mighty Boro are going up. . #
Will it be Brighton or Middlesbrough who secure the automatic promotion
spot? What a final day decider. In the Premier League we know who the
champions are. Claudio Ranieri's men will lift the trophy after their
game against Everton later. Down at bottom is where the battle is really
hotting up though. Newcastle visit already relegated Villa. Sunderland
host Chelsea. Both are huge games for the north-east sides if they are
to stay up. Norwich face a tough game against Manchester United at
Carrow Road. And speaking of the Red Devils, Hayley joined the first team
last week to celebrate the work of the Manchester United Foundation. It
has been a season of ups and downs for Manchester United, but they
could finish this season winning the FA Cup for the first time in 12
years. One of the main highlights for the
Reds this year has been the emergence of young talent like
Marcus Rashford and Lingard. Today Manchester United's new superstars
are going to be giving these young fans the surprise of a lifetime!
APPLAUSE You should have seen the faces on
those kids when the Manchester United first team walked in. Excited
is an under statement! The team are here as part of the schools united
event to celebrate the work of the Manchester United Foundation in
schools and communities across Greater Manchester.
These kids will learn all about the benefits of healthy eating and
physical activity from their heroes. Like this man, Jessie Lingard.
What's this is about? It is the Manchester United Foundation. We are
here to help the kids. We have got the healthy eating option and the
exercise inside and it is a good kick about and a good laugh and it
is good to get to know the kids as well.
Manchester United did so well in the semifinals. You had a great game.
How would it feel to win? It win a trophy would be massive. We're
prepared. We're ready. It would be good for the manager as well to get
a trophy. You're good friends with Marcus Rashford. I believe you've
got a special handshake? Yeah. Most of the lads have got hand shakes. It
is between me and him. We like it. It is good! I love the look of it.
Give it a go. How do I do it? Yeah. That way. Double tap and double tap
in the centre. Yeah. One, two, double tap. So what have the kids
thought about meeting their heroes? I've met all the players, but my
favourite one was Wayne Rooney. I raced Phil Jones and I beat him! How
did that feel? Great. It was the best day of my life.
Thanks, Hayley. Before we wrap things up, there is time to take a
look at your pictures and brilliant footie achievements. Here is Alex
with his Man of the Match trophy. Well done Alex. Rangers fans Emma
and Rosie play for Dunfermline football club. They reached the
quarter-finals of the cup. Here is Morley under 7s. They won 11-0. What
a result! If you want to see your photo on the show, just e-mail

dread spirits. More from this year's brand-new Premier League champions.
The fantastic Leicester City. I will see you next week for our end of
season special. Well done the Foxes! The great thing about Leicester's
dressing room is the sense of unity, the sense of purpose, the sense of
belonging. Here come Leicester again. It is in. Oh e he has done it
again! It is two. He is on side. Vardy! This is incredible. Vardy.
The flag stayed down. It is two. The dream is becoming reality. Claudio
