Jamie Vardy led Leicester City to the unthinkable last season, as he was one of the Foxes' key men in their title winning 2015/16 campaign.

The 29-year-old is now penning an autobiography and has come clean on his pre-match diet, which no doubt is one of the more crazier eating habits of any Premier League footballer.

“I can't say why it started, because I genuinely don't know, but I decided to drink a glass of port on the eve of every game in the 2015–16 season,” wrote Vardy.

“I'm not normally superstitious but from the moment I scored against Sunderland on the opening day, I didn't want to change anything. I fill a small plastic water or Lucozade bottle to halfway and just sip the port while watching television.”

Alcohol isn't a new revelation to Vardy's fans, as the star striker has previously given the public insight into his love affair with alcohol.

That isn't even the worst of it though, as Vardy also amazingly pumps himself full of caffeine before a game.

“At the start of the 2013/14 season I made some changes to my pre-match routine — and it's remained the same to this day,” wrote Vardy.

“With a traditional 3pm Saturday kick-off, I'll have a can of Red Bull as soon as I wake up, which is gone in 30 seconds. I don't have breakfast and won't eat anything until I have a cheese-and-ham omelette with baked beans at 11.30am. I wash that down with another Red Bull, which I also neck quickly.

“While we're waiting and killing a bit of time, I have a double espresso, normally with centre-half Marcin Wasilewski.

“We get into the dressing room an hour and a half before kick-off, and I'll have a third can of Red Bull straight away. But with this one I sip it all the way until we go out for the warm-up, leaving a bit to finish off when I come back in.

“So three Red Bulls, a double espresso and a cheese-and-ham omelette is what makes me run around like a nutjob on a match day.”
