Dancing fans waving blue and white flags poured onto the streets of LeicesterThousands celebrated and millions around the world looked on in wonder as 5,000-1 underdogs Leicester City completed arguably the greatest fairytale in sporting history by becoming English Premier League champions.

After all, it was Prommangkalachan, who some months ago had predicted that the team, which was a 5,000-1 outsider at the start of the season, will win the English Premier League title. (AP Photo/Mark Baker)BANGKOK (AP) — Tucked in the Chinatown area of Bangkok is a Buddhist temple that has turned overnight into a venerated site for Leicester City's fans, at least the ones in Thailand.
