As if emotions weren't running high enough among Leicester City fans, the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli flew to the UK over the weekend to give a moving performance in honour of the team miraculously winning the Premier League title.

Standing alongside the team's Italian manager, Claudio Ranieri, and sporting a Leicester City shirt, Bocelli belted out “Nessun Dorma” to a packed King Power stadium before launching into a tear-jerking “Time to Say Goodbye”.

The performance came before the team beat Everton 3-1, which kicked off their title celebrations.

The tenor also paid tribute to Ranieri, who has been hailed “King of England” after leading the team to victory within just one season as manager.
