You may have heard it by now. Leicester City captain Wes Morgan will be lifting the Premier League title at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.
But Morgan is set to be immortalised in another form too, as drinks brand Captain Morgan have confirmed they will release limited edition bottles of their 'Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold' rum with an image of Morgan on the front of the bottle.

The image will see their famous buccaneer on the label replaced, with the Jamaican international star dressed as Captain Morgan in royal blue and white robes to match the new Premier League champions' home kit. The move was confirmed after a Twitter exchange between Morgan and the company following the Foxes' title win.
The drinks company have have fast-tracked the production of the limited edition bottle now that Leicester are officially the champions for the first time in their 132 year history.

Morgan has played every minute in the Premier League to date and scored Leicester's equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday, before Tottenham failed to beat Chelsea the following day and in the process confirmed Leicester's victory.
Rhys Love, Senior Brand Manager of Captain Morgan said: “Captain’s lead by example and we are thrilled to have one of the greatest captains of recent times, who coincidentally shares our name, become the centre of a historic sporting moment. We have created a limited edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan bottle to celebrate his incredible title win triumph as the club’s skipper. We salute Leicester City and their own Captain Morgan.”
