Srivaddhanaprabha, 60, was among five people killed when his helicopter crashed moments after taking off from the King Power Stadium following the match against West Ham.

The chairman was a hugely popular figure and it was under his ownership that Leicester memorably defied pre-season odds of 5,000-1 to claim an unlikely Premier League title success.
“Harsh for people to hammer Lee Probert for booking Gray who ripped off shirt celebrating goal, with message ‘For Vichai’,” she tweeted. “Refs can’t decide on the spot which t-shirt messages are more poignant than others. Ref would’ve hated booking him but felt he had to. No win situation.”
On Saturday the team played their first match since Srivaddhanaprabhas death, winning 1-0 at Cardiff in a Premier League match.
