Leicester City Players Storm Thailand For Owner's Funeral [Touching Photos]

Leicester City players are in Thailand for the funeral of the club's owner, who was killed in a helicopter crash.

Jamie Vardy and club captain Wes Morgan are among the players who attended a prayer ceremony at a Bangkok temple for Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral yesterday.

It began on Saturday with Buddhist bathing rituals, and is being followed by a week of recitation ceremonies.

The Leicester players travelled to Thailand on the 12-hour flight on Saturday after winning 1-0 at Cardiff City in the Premier League, in the first game since his death.

They joined Sunday's Buddhist prayers for Mr Vichai and will do so again today before arriving back in the UK the following day to prepare for their home match against Burnley on Saturday. They were all close to late Vichai.
