Fan Honors to Leicester Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha begins as a one-week memorial in Bangkok

Tribute was paid to the British chairman of Leicester City, who was killed in a helicopter crash last weekend.

Players and supporters have honored Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha at Cardiff City Stadium, where the Foxes won 1-0 in their first duel since last weekend's tragedy.

A minute's silence was also observed by players and fans before it came to an emotional game.

Demarai Gray scored the only goal of the match in the second half and celebrated his jersey to show a jersey with the words "For Khun Vichai".

Members of the Leicester squad are now leaving to join the week-long memorial in Thailand.

Mourners were seen on Saturday at a Buddhist temple in Bangkok to honor Vichai.

It began one week until the day he and four others died near the bottom of the Royal Power.

Leicester fans previously gathered in the stadium to expand the vast sea of ​​scarves, shirts and flowers before boarding the buses to South Wales.

Tributes were made on the court. Players and fans wore white T-shirts with a picture of Vichai under the words "The Boss."

Fans and teams watched a minute of silence throughout the football league on Saturday.

The city has experienced emotions in the last week and flooded with wishes from all over the country.

Nusara Suknamai, Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz died on Saturday after a 1-1 draw with West Ham United.

Leicester boss Claude Puel will lead senior players, including captain Wes Morgan, striker Jamie Vardy and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to support the Vichai family.

The club's group will come back on Tuesday before visiting Burnley next weekend.

It will be the first home game since the tragedy.

The Thai billionaire Vichai, 60, was known for having to leave and leave the stadium with his helicopter.

In front of the monument, Vardy paid tribute to Vichai as a "fun, loving guy" who always had a smile on his face.

"He was like the father figure of the group, who wanted to be not just with the players, but also with the fans, to be one," he said.

"Not only was he a chairman, he always made sure he tried to meet you personally with your families.

"He took us in as his extended family, and that's what we did to him, it was one of the toughest weeks I and the boys had to go through."

Flight data and voice recordings from the helicopter were obtained as an investigation into the crash continued.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said it was able to get information from the black box of the AW169 helicopter, even though it was exposed to "high heat" in the aftermath of the accident.

The wreck was taken to a specialist after being lifted off the crash site by a crane on Thursday night.

The inspectors started with a detailed analysis of the data to find out why the plane fell to the ground shortly after launch.
