He said: "It was just a lot of tears. I mean I bawled my eyes out after the game. Then we got in the car, we drove down to the ground and it was beeping horns and I just stood out of my sun roof, you know, with the Leicester flag, down there till like two in the morning, just singing with the boys, with the whole city it felt like. 

"And then I drove home, just laughing. You know, you support a team for all your life, but it's not just that - it's like sharing it with your pals."
