A special Sunday edition was produced by a regional daily to mark an historic sporting moment on its patch.
The Leicester Mercury ran the edition yesterday after Leicester City FC lifted football’s Premier League trophy following their home game against Everton on Saturday afternoon.
The club’s confirmation as champions of England for the first time in their 132-year history had been confirmed on Monday night after nearest rivals Tottenham Hotspur failed to beat Chelsea.
The front page, pictured below, featured England international Jamie Vardy, the club’s top scorer this season, holding the trophy aloft following the presentation ceremony on Saturday evening.
Interim editor Rob Irvine described the edition as a “special edition for a special moment” on Twitter.
The Mercury followed up the special with a 28-page picture supplement in today’s edition.
City’s triumph also made front page news beyond its patch, with Trinity Mirror sister daily the Nottingham Post running a picture of captain Wes Morgan holding the trophy aloft on its front page today, pictured below.
Morgan was born and raised in Nottingham and spent 10 years with City’s local rivals Nottingham Forest before making the move south in 2012.
