Lineker posted the Tweet after Leicester City beat Chelsea 2-1 to go two points clear at the top of the league.

LCFC are currently five points clear with four games to go.

He tweeted: “YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I’ll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.”

Shreddies manager Richard Woolley told the Leicester Mercury: “We are searching for a special fabric in the Leicester City blue for the underwear.

“We will be in contact with Gary’s people to find out what size to produce the pants in. We are a local company he is a local lad – it is a perfect fit.”
