The result left Foxes players and fans in dreamland, but also delighted all those connected with Arsenal.
The Gunners had been expected to capitalise on Chelsea's poor campaign and win the title themselves, but they faltered repeatedly, and sit below Spurs in the table.
The worst fears of Arsenal fans and players would have been for their North London rivals to actually win the league. This is now no longer possible.
Former Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski celebrated, insisting 'London is Red', despite Arsenal sitting three points below Spurs in the league.
Arsenal under-21 defender Julio Plezeguelo was even more blunt, expressing his amusement at seeing Spurs lose it late on.

Perhaps ex Arsenal youth star Jay Bothroyd summed it up best, when he admitted that seeing Spurs miss out on the title was the best part of Arsenal's season... which really suggests the Gunners need to give their fans reason to smile themselves.
Congratulations to Leicester amazing achievement!! I'm so happy I was proved wrong. Tottenham not winning is the best part of AFC season!— Jay bothroyd (@jaybothroyd) May 2, 2016
