- Story Text: Leicester City players left a Bangkok temple on Monday (November 5) after attending the funeral of club chairman, Vichai Srividdhanaprabha.
The service was the third day in a week-long ceremony commemorating the Thai billionaire.
The team - including manager Claude Puel, striker Jamie Vardy and others - were seen arriving at the temple clad in black suits to pay their respects to the King Power founder.
Also paying tribute was Thailand's Prime Minister, Prayuth Chan-ocha.
Vichai, and four others, died on October 27 when his helicopter crashed next to Leicester's King Power Stadium. The seven-day funeral started on Saturday in Bangkok.
The team travelled 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.
