David Cameron Tweeted His Congratulations To Leicester City Last Night And It Backfired Spectacularly
| Last updated
Last night, we all witnessed something that will probably never happen again.
Leicester City improved upon their 14th place finish during the 2014/15 Premier League season, by finishing first in this years campaign and winning the trophy for the first time in their history.
It was a historical achievement, which was not only fantastic for Leicester fans to watch, but also for football fans in general.
Many people took to Twitter to voice their reactions and congratulations for the new champions of England, most notably delirious ex-Leicester forward and life-long fan Gary Lineker.
One of those offering their congratulations was Prime Minister David Cameron.
Dave rightly commented on the extraordinary achievement from a club that was fighting relegation just one season before. However, he became inundated with replies, and they weren't good.
People were quick to remind him that he wasn't the most knowledgeable of football fans, given the time he claimed to be an Aston Villa fan, but got them confused with West Ham.
Many congratulations to Leicester. An extraordinary, thoroughly deserved, Premier League title.

Naturally, it was fun to edit some of his tweets.
That's unfortunate, Dave.
