​Vardy: Hard work the only secret to my success

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says the secret behind his meteoric rise from non-league football to the Premier League is simply down to 'hard work'.

Vardy has enjoyed an incredible start to his first season in the top division scoring in nine consecutive league games.

However, Vardy started his career a long way from the glitz and glamour of the Premier League, having worked in a factory while playing non-league football.

"It's taken a lot of hard work. I will carry on with that attitude and hopefully get even better," Vardy told the Daily Mail.
