Steven Gerrard may be thought of as royalty at Liverpool Football Club, but he humbly took time out of his training schedule to visit the King and Queen of Thailand. 

Liverpool arrived in the countries capital of Bangkok on Thursday in preparation for their match this Sunday against the Thailand national team. 

Gerrard trained with the first-team this morning before heading with manager Brendan Rodgers and managing director Ian Ayre to the Siriraj Hospital, where the current rulers of Thailand reside.

Amongst the gifts offered to His Majesty the King was a special book bearing messages from all the Liverpool players, and a bouquet of flowers which was rested underneath a portrait of the King. 

The Anfield trio then all signed a Liverpool shirt which carried the message 'Long Live The King' and had printed on its back 'Bangkok 2013.'

An estimated crowd of nearly 5,000 people turned out to see Steven Gerrard pay tribute.
