King Power

Author:

Richard III

Synopsis:

On 25th March 2015, when King Richard III - recently rescued from a municipal car park - was reburied in Leicester Cathedral, his beloved football team had just lost 4-3 to Tottenham Hotspur. Bottom of the Premier League and teetering on the edge of relegation, the future of Leicester City FC looked bleak. But, with King Richard finally at rest, things were about to change... Here, in his own words, Richard himself tells the remarkable story of how these 5,000-1 Premier League outsiders became champions - the goals, games, and dressing-room banter which led to a triumph of Shakespearean proportions for this team of heroes.
