Whether he had even heard of Leicester City a year ago is debatable, but Tom Brady is now all-in on The Foxes.

The New England Patriots quarterback and four-time SuperBowl champion sent a video to Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and the rest of the team. The Danish star is a massive fan of American football and the NFL. 

Brady has clearly being paying attention to Leicester's recent form which includes five clean-sheets in a row. "Keep up the great work. I Know you guys are kicking butt. You haven't not given up many goals in the last couple of games." 

Schmeichel was himself delighted to see the video from Brady, who he called "one of my biggest idols". 

Leicester City can move ten points clear on Sunday afternoon when they meet  West Ham United at the King Power Stadium.
