Jamie Vardy was among those who attended the funeral ceremony in Bangkok
Leicester City manager Claude Puel led many of the club’s star players – including England defender Harry Maguire, striker Jamie Vardy and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel – into the Buddhist temple in Bangkok on Sunday.
The team were seen arriving at the temple clad in black suits to pay their respects to the 60-year-old Thai billionaire King Power founder.
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.
Mr Srivaddhanaprabha rose from having a single store in Bangkok to owning the duty-free King Power empire, whose shops are widespread at Thailand’s airports.
