Leicester defender Wes Morgan said Mr Srivaddhanaprabha was "a thoughtful person, he'd do anything for anyone".

It is being reported that Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel ran towards the wreckage to help those inside, but was stopped by police for his own safety.

Probert, the man in the middle for the game, showed him a yellow card for "excessive celebration" and received a whole lot of criticism on social media for doing so because the general consensus is that common sense should prevail even if rules are rules.

Under Srivaddhanaprabha's ownership, Leicester secured promotion to the top-flight in 2014 and, against odds of 5,000-1, won the 2015/16 Premier League title.

Fans are expected to unfurl a huge flag tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, from Thailand, before kick-off and players will wear their own t-shirt tributes to the man known affectionately as "The Boss".

A deeply touching sentiment and one which even many Cardiff fans cheered.

An applause rang out in the stadium after his tragic death a week ago when his helicopter crashed, killing all five people.

The other four people killed in the crash were employees Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, who was also a professional pilot.

Monks, royal soldiers and relatives have all joined the procession to the temple in Bangkok, Thailand.

Vichai's body arrived back in Thailand on Friday night on a private jet.

Following the game, Leicester players are now flying out to the funeral. He gave us belief.

"We all spoke about. wanting to play, it's what Vichai would've wanted and that's what we are going to do", striker Jamie Vardy told Sky Sports, adding that they would "honour his name" with their performance.

It began with a bathing ritual using royally-bestowed water and an eight-sided urn lent as an honour by King Maha Vajiralongkorn.

Thailand's kings have traditionally granted such honours at the funerals of high-ranking state officials or citizens who had devoted their lives to the good of the country.

The body will be kept for a further 100 days, and his cremation will take place at a future date. "The chance to go out there and attend his funeral was offered to us and everyone jumped on that".
