Watch: Claudio Ranieri Weeps As the Leicester Fairy-Tale Takes Another Stride To Becoming Real
By Gavin Cooney Updated

In years to come, this will become one of the defining images of an extraordinary season. So incredible has it been, that if Leicester City do win the league - as now looks probable - it will be a weird anti-climax.

The story is a fairy-tale, with Claudio Ranieri its avuncular custodian. Today's 2-0 win against Sunderland sent the Foxes ten points clear, and Jamie Vardy's brace about to put flesh on the most stupefying of dreams: we will soon see Wes Morgan hoist the Premier League trophy aloft. Ranieri - hired following a failure with Greece that featured defeat to the Faroe islands - has had a twinkle in his eye since being hired.

What a fantastic moment.
