Tenor Bocelli, sporting a Leicester City shirt, took to the pitch to serenade the stadium with Puccini’s famous Nessun Dorma from the opera Turandot.

A visibly emotional Ranieri held up his hand to silence his teams chanting supporters at the beginning of the aria.

Bocelli was also given a tour behind the scenes at the stadium.
