Leicester City staff, players and fans were in tears as they held a minute's silence for their owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, before their first match since his death.

Supporters travelling to the game away at Cardiff City on Saturday started the day with a free breakfast and tribute t-shirt provided by the club, which many were seen wearing at the match.

Fans unfurled a huge flag tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, from Thailand, before kick-off and players wore their own t-shirt tributes to the man known affectionately as 'The Boss'.

The Premier League match is the Foxes' first since Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people were killed in a helicopter crash outside King Power Stadium on 27 October.

Manager Claude Puel has said the result in Cardiff is "not important" but forward Jamie Vardy said the players wanted to play at Cardiff so they can honour Srivaddhanaprabha.
