Leicester City’s team captain Wes Morgan, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, striker Jamie Vardy, director of football Jon Rudkin with team members and officials arrive at Wat Thepsirin, Bangkok, on Sunday, the second day of the funeral ceremony for Leicester City’s Thai owner and duty-free mogul, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Leicester City players attended the funeral for club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash a week ago, at Wat Thepsirin on Sunday, the second day of a ceremony due to last one week.

The 60-year-old billionaire, who also owned the King Power duty-free business empire, was killed with four others when his helicopter crashed next to Leicester’s King Power Stadium.

The Leicester City team – including manager Claude Puel, striker Jamie Vardy and dozens of others – were seen arriving at the temple clad in black suits to pay their respects to their late boss.

They traveled to Thailand on Saturday after winning an English Premier League match against Cardiff City, where tributes were brought onto the pitch before the game in memory of Vichai.

Vichai bought Leicester in 2010. The team went on to stun the soccer world by winning the Premier League title against the odds in 2016.
