In pictures: Leicester players arrive in Thailand for late owner's funeral

After Saturday’s emotional win over Cardiff City, Leicester City players and staff flew to Thailand to attend a prayer ceremony in Bangkok for the funeral of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five fatalities last week when his helicopter crashed shortly after lifting off from the King Power Stadium pitch. His death has sent the football world into mourning.

Players including Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel, and Harry Maguire, along with manager Claude Puel, will attend Buddhist services on Sunday and Monday before flying back to the UK to resume training.
