      Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has slammed “vile” Twitter trolls who threatened to rape his one-year-old daughter.

      Vardy's fiance Rebecca Nicholson was overwhelmed with threats after sharing a picture of their daughter wearing a Leicester City shirt with “Daddy” number 9 on the back.

      The England international shared screen-grabs of the threats, calling them “shocking and vile”.

      A Leicestershire Police spokesperson confirmed to ITV News that officers were investigating the abuse and were in contact with Leicester City.

      A spokesperson for Leicester City confirmed to ITV News that the club was aware of the tweets.

      Vardy's fiance responded to one of the tweets, saying: “There are no words for people like you – you need locking up.”

      The accounts have since been either suspended or deleted.

      Vardy has played a pivotal role in table-topping Leicester's stunning season.

      The club moved closer to securing their first ever league title with a 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

      In a statement, Leicestershire Police said:
      Leicestershire Police is investigating a report of malicious communication being sent via social media.

      A report was made today (Monday 4 April) of an abusive message being received yesterday evening (Sunday 3 April) by a woman on Twitter.

      Enquiries remain ongoing and the force is liaising with Leicester City Football Club.
