From new tattoos to Buddhism: The most ridiculous of the 'if Leicester win the league...' promises
Leicester's unlikely success means a lot of people will be getting new ink12:25 Tuesday 3 May 2016, 12:25 3 May 2016
Leicester City's improbable but fantastic title winning run has made a lot of people happy as their fans both at home and abroad mark the incredible achievement.
While there are probably some sore heads on Tuesday morning as the celebrations got underway after Spurs were unable to keep the pressure on them with a draw against Chelsea.
However, there will be more than sore heads for a number of people who made promises throughout the season on social media that they would be doing anything from a feat of athleticism to getting a new tattoo...or changing their religion.

There were plenty of offers to eat random things also, while comedian David O'Doherty was hedging his bets with a low risk wager.

at the start of the season I promised that if Leicester win the league, I'd eat a Solero. O'Doherty ALWAYS keeps his promises— David O'Doherty (@phlaimeaux) 2 May 2016
There were offers to have names changed legally as well, which seems pretty unlikely.

At least one tweeter did follow through on their claim that they would get their head shaved, and posted the video online on Tuesday, while others are scouting out tattoo shops to get their ink work done.
Anybody know a decent tattoo shop in the barrow area??? 😂😂😂 #WhatATwat— Scott Bown (@BownScott) 2 May 2016
Of course, there was the promise from Gary Lineker that he would present an episode of Match of the Day in his pants, which has been given the go ahead by the BBC.
YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I'll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) 14 December 2015
While he wasn't backing out of that dare, he was trying to backtrack on a tweet he sent at the start of the season in which he seemed to be suggesting that he wasn't a big fan of the Claudio Ranieri appointment.
