Leicester Fans In Tears As Tribute To Khun Vichai Is Played On TV Screens

A touching video tribute to former Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was played around the King Power this afternoon, moments before the 3pm kick off against Burnley.

Silence fell upon the stadium as they watched a five minute tribute, with tears rolling down the faces of many, as reported by BBC presenter Jacqui Oatley.

It is a truly moving moment.

Leicester City posted the clip on their official Twitter account, 13 minutes before kick-off - a truly heartbreaking montage of a wonderful chairman who gave so much to the club and city.

On October 28, 2018, the world mourned an incredibly kind and generous man who allowed football fans to dream again.

Fans and players have since paid tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, with people taking part in a walk from Jubilee Square to the King Power stadium in the #WalkForVichai, earlier today.

In another touching moment, a rainbow emerged over the King Power before Leicester City's first home game since Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha passed away.

This is a man who helped mastermind one of the greatest sporting stories of any generation, but he also gave the people of Leicester hope and goodwill in an uncertain time.

Vichai bought Leicester in 2010 when they were struggling in the Championship and in turn, cleared their debts by loaning the club more than £100 million in the first four years.

Srivaddhanaprabha would not only pump money into the football club, but his generosity toward the city of Leicester was nothing short of incredible.

People from around the world have once again paid tribute to the 60-year-old today, and many have said the same thing.

He was a good man - a generous man
