1. After Leicester City became only the fifth team in history to be crowned Premier League champions following a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham that ended Spurs’ challenge, Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri says he ‘always believed’ his squad would win the title.

2. Burnley sealed their promotion to the Premiership after a 1-0 win over QPR guaranteed the Clarets a top two finish. Middlesbrough and Brighton, both tied on 88 points and in second and third respectively, play each other on the final day of the Championship season in a promotion decider.

3. Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was named as the club’s player of the year for the third year in a row. The Spaniard has kept his team in games throughout the season, producing exceptional performances while others flattered to deceive.

4. Bournemouth have been fined £7.6m after breaking financial fair play rules in gaining promotion to the top flight for the first time last season. In winning the Championship in 2014-15, the Cherries amassed a £38.3m loss.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo and Vincent Kompany return to training, and both hope to be able to play a part in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Manchester City.

7. Memphis Depay reacted to reports suggesting his future at Manchester United was in doubt by posting a series of pictures of him celebrating his goal against Watford on Instagram: how very 21st century..! (Express).

8. It’s the stuff of football legend, but was the 1953 FA Cup ‘Matthews Final’ all it is cracked up to be? One Journalist attempts to find out once and for all (WhoAteAllThePies).

9. Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers took part in the Belfast Marathon over the weekend. As if running 26.2 miles wasn’t hard enough, he had to do it whilst being heckled by spectators (Independent).

10. And finally, Freddie Flintoff does his best to distract Jamie Redknapp during live Sky Sports News interview (Metro).
