Claudio Ranieri told 240,000 fans who packed the streets of Leicester to salute the Foxes' Premier League triumph to "keep dreaming."

The victorious team and manager Ranieri paraded the trophy yesterday on an open-top bus tour through the city with Leicester rock band Kasabian finishing the show at Victoria Park where around 240,000 people had gathered.

When asked about City's Champions League campaign next term Ranieri said: "Yes. Keep dreaming, keep dreaming. Don't wake up."

He added: "It's unbelievable. All the city is here. It's something special. I think this is because the team won, but also played with heart and soul and the people understood this. I can only say thank you to all the people."
