Leicester City earned more money from the Champions League last season, than eventual winners Real Madrid.

There was a total of €1.4billion (£1.25bn) in UEFA’s prize fund for the 2016/17 competition.

The former Premier League champions banked a whopping €81.7million (£73.2m), despite getting dumped out at the quarter-final stage.

Real who beat Juventus in the final, received €81million (£72.6m).

Juve’s €110.4million (£98.9m) was the most earned by any side in last year’s competition.

Premier League and Serie A clubs took a greater share of the money, due to the TV deals being more valuable in England and Italy.
