Less than 24 hours after an horrendous helicopter crash outside Leicester City's King Power Stadium, the Premier League side have this evening confirmed the death of their club's owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

In a statement released via the club's Twitter account, Leicester City tried to put into words the grief that overwhelmed all involved with the club.

Along with four others who have perished in the incident, Srivaddhanaprabha's helicopter departed the King Power Stadium after Leicester City drew 1-1 with West Ham United in the Premier League yesterday evening.

With fans from all around the country arriving at the sight of the incident throughout the day as a sign of respect for the much-loved Thai owner, Srivaddhanaprabha had played a pivotal role in bringing the club to the point where they could win the Premier League title.

A contributing factor to the high esteem in which Srivaddhanaprabha was held, Leicester City described him as "a man of kindness, of generosity and a man whose life was defined by the love he devoted to his family and those he so successfully led."

"Leicester City was a family under his leadership."

The club also confirmed that they will open a book of condolences for those so tragically lost in the accident from October 30.
