The continent’s stars have come together to pay respect to late owner of the Premier League club who was involved in an aircraft tragedy

Riyad Mahrez, Wilfred Ndidi and other African stars have paid tribute to Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in Saturday’s helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium.

Srivaddhanaprabha was confirmed dead on Sunday alongside four other individuals who were in the helicopter after watching the Foxes’ hold West Ham United to a 1-1 draw.

And players including the club's former stars have paid homage to the Thai billionaire who bought the club in August 2010 and oversaw their Premier League triumph in 2016.
