The one-time Fleetwood striker helped put the Foxes in pole position for a surprise title win, and his stunning rise even earned him a spot in Roy Hodgson’s Euros squad, who got banged after chatting shit.
This season, the striker’s form has suffered a sharp dip. In fact, the last time Vardy found the net at club level was 10 September, when he fired past Simon Mignolet in Leicester’s 4-1 defeat at Anfield.
That’s nearly three months without a goal, and given the chaotic nature of this crazy planet we call home, a lot can happen during that time. Here are six world changing events since Vardy last got on the scoresheet.

The Donald was elected to the highest office in the land on 8 November - a full two months after Vardy last found the net.

Vardy's goal drought has also been kept out of the headlines by the tragic news that Toblerones will be scaled back this year.
Allardyce got sacked
Vardy and Allardyce looked like a match made in heaven, but Big Sam was abruptly relieved of his duties on 27 September - you know the rest.
Fidel Castro died
Fidel Castro lived to the age of 90, and probably would have had to wait until 100 if he wanted to see Vardy bang one in again.
