Leicester City football club turned in a truly brave display against Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.

The Foxes are still mourning the death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was tragically killed in a helicopter crash last Saturday.

However, the players were on hand to seal all three points in South Wales, with Demarai Gray scoring the only goal of the game.

The scene before the game was truly moving and the whole day was a wonderful tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha.

Leicester have conducted themselves fantastically through such a tragic time and the Foxes have shown their class yet again.

The Sun report that Leicester will offer everyone associated with the club the same level of grief counselling.

That means those in the every youth team and every member of staff will be entitled to the same level of care as the club's stars.

It's a wonderful gesture.

Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said that he had already received the level of care he required, prior to leaving for Bangkok.

He said: “I spoke to somebody. I was on the pitch, I waved him off, I saw it all happen. It was something that will stay with me, unfortunately.

“But the club has been great and everybody has received the support they needed. It is not a nice memory but I have had all the support I need.”

A parent of a Leicester academy player added: “It’s a wonderful gesture by the club who have shown they really do treat every player, no matter how young or old, as a member of the family.

“Many of them have visited the stadium to lay flowers and have seen the thousands of tributes. It’s in their thoughts and they talk about it a lot.”
