Nearly six million armchair viewers watched Leicester City’s dramatic last minute third round FA Cup victory over Spurs on Sunday.

With five goals and the most unlikely comeback from a two-goal deficit, 5.9 million people tuned into the BBC coverage according to the official FA website.

As a mass media advertisement it was the perfect uplift for City before a difficult programme of vital league matches.
