UK:
Following their historic title win, underdog side Leicester City will be able to toast to their team captain Wes Morgan with a bottle of limited edition spiced rum.

According to ITV, spirit brand, Captain Morgan is set to release honorary bottles designed to celebrate the Premier League winner’s victory – replacing their famous buccaneer on the label with an image of the centre-back.

The 32-year-old has played every minute of the title winning campaign so far (3,285 minutes), becoming the third outfield Premier League champion to do so after Gary Pallister and more recently John Terry in 2015 who both completed the season having played 3,420 minutes.

BOTTOMS UP: Captain 'Wes' Morgan

Rhys Love, senior brand manager of Captain Morgan said: “Captain’s led by example and we are thrilled to have one of the greatest captains of recent times, who coincidentally shares our name, become the centre of a historic sporting moment.

"We have created a limited edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan bottle to celebrate his incredible title win triumph as the club’s skipper. We salute Leicester City and their own Captain Morgan.”

Morgan who joined the side in January of 2012 has become the first Jamaican to win a Premier League winners medal according to Football 365.

Leicester City were crowned champions of the English premier league yesterday (May 2) after north London team Tottenham failed to win at Stamford Bridge.
