Cardiff owner Vincent Tan could not attend the game but his son U-Peng Tan laid a wreath pitchside, before Leicester's entire playing and coaching staff joined Cardiff in the centre circle to observe a minute's silence.

Demarai Gray scored the only goal of the game and celebrated by taking off his shirt and revealing a top with the words 'For Khun Vichai' across the front.

Leicester players then stood in front of their fans for 10 minutes after the match, applauding as supporters chanted and unveiled messages.
