Jamie Vardy Had The Best Reaction To The 30,000 Jamie Vardy Masks At Leicester

Leicester City fans who went to the King Power Stadium to watch their team play against Everton today were greeted by the rather surreal sight of 30,000 Jamie Vardy masks.

Star striker Vardy was handed a three-match ban after his two-footed challenge on Mama Biram Diouf in their game against Stoke earlier this month.

And the club tried to appeal the decision but the FA stuck to its guns.

Leicester have, so far, been unable to keep up with the shock success they had last season; winning just four out of their opening 17 games this term and hovering just three points above the relegation zone.

Vardy's ban means that as well as missing today's game he will also miss matches against Middlesbrough and West Ham.

Owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha took to Instagram to call the decision unfair, adding that the team are 'fearless and never quit'.

Whether you think the ban was unfair or not, it did lead to the wonderful moment of Jamie Vardy wearing a Jamie Vardy mask.

Which, you have to admit, is pretty brilliant.
