As we all know, the Foxes defied all expectations and stormed their way to the Premier League title, winning the league by a robust 10 points. Needless to say, they were deserving winners of the award.
Wes Morgan accepted the award and spoke for the team.
"It’s a huge honour to receive this award. What we achieved was absolutely incredible. No one thought we could."
"It was something that people thought was impossible but we proved it was possible."
"I want to thank everyone behind the scenes at Leicester. A big thank you to our fans too for their loyal support."
Sir Claudio Ranieri was also honored at the awards, winning Coach of the Year.

"It’s fantastic to take this award here in England. I can say only again thank you to my players, the chairman and my staff."
"Of course, without our fans, it was impossible to win the title. Thank you to everybody!" - Claudio Ranieri, gracious as ever in his acceptance of the award
Lastly, Jamie Vardy was a finalist for Sports Personality of the Year, but lost out to tennis star Andy Murray.
