BANGKOK, NNC - A number of Leicester City players have flown to Bangkok on Sunday to attend the funeral procession of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, owner of Leicester City, who was killed in a helicopter accident last week.

Vichai, a 60-year-old Thai businessman, was killed along with four other people when the helicopter they were traveling in crashed next to the Leicester King Power Stadium club stadium on October 27.

Quoting from Antara, the funeral procession for Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha lasts seven days starting on Saturday at a temple in Bangkok.

Leicester manager Claude Puel, striker Jamie Vardy and dozens of Premier League club players were seen arriving at the temple wearing black shirts for the final tribute to Vichai.

They traveled to Thailand Saturday after the match against Cardiff City, where honors were also made before the match began.

To note, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha bought Leicester City in 2010. The club surprised the world of football when it won the English Premier League in 2016.
