Kasper Schmeichel, an avid fan of NFL and the New England Patriots fan, received a "good luck message" from legendary quarterback Tom Brady ahead of Leicester's final five games of the season.
The 29-year-old keeper was delighted to receive the message, and insists it shows that the hype surrounding Leicester is being felt around the world, not just in England.
"Tom Brady, wow. A big hero of mine, so that's fantastic. He's the best at his sport ever, I think, so that's impressive, he told Sky Sports.
"I'm quite a big fan. That's brilliant, I've got to admit.
"We only really get to experience it here in England, but that shows it's gone everywhere. I've had messages from all over the world, and it's captured the imagination of everyone."
