Sky Sports pays tribute to Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was among five killed in Saturday's helicopter crash

Tributes to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha have poured in from around the world after the Leicester City chairman was among five people killed in Saturday's helicopter crash.

The entire Leicester squad joined the Srivaddhanaprabha family in observing the vast amount of tributes left by supporters outside the King Power Stadium on Monday, before a book of condolence was opened on Tuesday.

Srivaddhanaprabha, who founded the retail company King Power Duty Free, bought Leicester in August 2010 and became the club's chairman less than six months later.

Under his ownership, Leicester secured promotion to the top flight in 2014 and, against odds of 5,000-1, won the 2015/16 Premier League title.

Soon after the title win, opera singer Andrea Bocelli sang at the King Power Stadium, where he performed several songs including Time to Say Goodbye.
