Tottenham Hotspur’s failure to beat West Bromwich Albion on Monday night means that Leicester City are almost nailed on win the Premier League.
Leicester’s title win will see them enter next season’s Champions League as top seeds.
However, more significantly, the completion of this modern fairytale will mean that Gary Lineker must honour his promise to present Match of the Day in his kegs.
Lineker played for Spurs and Leicester during his goal-hanging career, but he has made it very clear that he is Foxes first.
In a bid to show his support for Leicester earlier this season, the King of Cheesy Crisps vowed to strip down to his smalls on the BBC’s Premier League highlights if Claudio Ranieri’s men were crowned champions of England.
Sensing that he will soon have to make good on his promise, Lineker sent out a sweary tweet.
Un-fucking-believable! I’d better find myself a decent pair of pants!

He soon got some advice, from celebrity Arsenal fan Matt Lucas.
Concerned bystander @BobbyLD joined the conversation, urging Lineker – who famously sh*t himself at the 1990 World Cup – to ensure his whites are white.
