Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's family lay wreath on the King Power Stadium pitch

Leicester City's King Power Stadium

A statement said: "It is with great sadness that we received news of the death of Izabela Lechowicz in the Leicester helicopter crash". He was the owner they all wanted, "The People's Billionaire" as one fan called him.

"Today, our inspectors in Farnborough will start working on the recorder, which was subject to intense heat as a result of the post-accident fire", according to a statement from the AAIB, which investigates all civil aircraft accidents in Britain.

Leading players in the side, including Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire, sent messages of support on Twitter while rival clubs including Manchester City also voiced their concern.

"Thank you for all you did for the club, for always encouraging the team and coming all the way to watch me play at the world cup".

The players walked around the perimeter of jerseys, scarves and flowers that has formed at the King Power Stadium since Saturday's helicopter crash claimed the lives of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others.

Officials from the club and Vichai's company, duty-free giant King Power International, declined to comment on whether he was in the helicopter when it spiralled out of control and crashed around an hour after the game.

Supporters pay tribute at Leicester City Footbal Club following a helicopter used by club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, crashing into flames in a vehicle park near the stadium shortly after 8.30pm on Saturday evening.

"The very fact is he was just an incredible gentleman as well, his popularity was far beyond Leicester but Leicester would have taken the bulk of that".

For all those long journeys the Spireites faithful have made over the past few years to see completely unacceptable performances, there has been little done by the club to show their appreciation for such ongoing loyalty.

"We cherish our university's long-standing partnership with Leicester City, which has delivered so much for us through our joint efforts, often at the prompting of the owner".

"He gave them the opportunity, he gave them everything that they needed - a fantastic achievement and one that was well merited".

Fellow City defender and England left-back Ben Chilwell hailed "one of the best people you could wish to meet".

"Never have I ever come across a man like you". You inspired me and I believed in you.

"Words can't describe how I feel".

The Foxes mourn the loss of their president, who bought the club in 2010 and won an unexpected Premier League title six years later. We will continue to live on the legacy that Mr Srivaddhanaprabha has bought to the city and to the great football club.

Club captain, Wes Morgan, said the chairman was "adored" by everyone at the club.

"A man that was loved and adored by everyone here at LCFC and someone who I had personally had the utmost respect for".

"We would like to send our honest condolences to the family of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha at this sad and tragic time".

'He made such a big contribution to football, not least through Leicester City's magical 2016 season that captured the imagination of the world.

Thai businessman Mr Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people all died when the aircraft fell from the sky and burst into flames in a parking lot after the Premier League game against West Ham at about 8.30pm.

He added: "I invite you to gather with me at 10.45am on Tuesday in Hawthorn Square to remember them all with a minute's silence and a minute's applause - and to pay tribute to Khun Vichai's remarkable leadership of his remarkable club".

"There were projects by Leicester City to select Thai teenagers to train in the club's academy".
