Earlier today, with a a nuanced touch of self-deprecation and/or 'trolling', Robert Huth promised us he'd pull a John Terry during Leicester's coronation as Premier League champions.
Going full John Terry today!! #fullkit #LCFC

Big Bob may be a cult hero to English football fans considering the roller-coaster trajectory of his career, but the 19-cap German international has been a crucial component of a stellar Foxes defence which kept 15 clean sheets in Huth's 35 league appearances this season.
As a professional player Huth is surely exempt from being branded a 'full-kit wanker', but even relating him to Terry's Champions League antics is probably slightly harsh, considering the 31-year-old actually played when Leicester sealed the title last weekend - and 34 times prior to that 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
However, a tug on Marouane Fellaini's hair last weekend saw him suspended for three Premier League games, meaning he missed today's 3-1 victory over Everton at the King Power Stadium.
To be fair to Huth, he played with Terry for four seasons before moving on to Middlesbrough in 2006, so his jibe at the Chelsea captain was likely made with merely playful intentions. But sure enough, the Berlin Wall emerged fully togged out to get his hands on the trophy.

As it turns out, Huth wasn't the only one to fully kit out as he accepted his just rewards having missed today's game. As it turns out, all players are required by the powers that be to don the full kit in order to accept their medals, and so there wasn't one member of the Leicester squad wearing a tracksuit.
That might put a bit of a dampener on Huth's ingenious idea, but bear in mind he still put in shin-guards, presumably in case Terry rocked up for revenge en route to the podium.
Finally, Robert Huth is now a three-time Premier League champion. Let that sink in, and embrace it.
