"My thoughts today are with the family and friends of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and all the victims of the awful crash at Leicester City Football Club", William said.

A phenomenal achievement in itself.

Vichai, 60, was among five people who died when the helicopter crashed in the stadium auto park moments after taking off from the pitch following Saturday's match.

Fans laid down football scarves and shirts outside Leicester City's King Power Stadium on Sunday, a day after a helicopter belonging to the club's Thai owner crashed outside the grounds.

But in one the most remarkable football stories of all time, the Foxes won the Premier League title that year, bringing huge celebrations and a global focus to the club and the city.

"He was everything to Leicester City", O'Neill told Good Morning Ulster.

In a statement, the duke said: 'I was lucky to have known Vichai for several years.

"I always believed in the power of our spirit", Vichai said in 2016. "It just doesn't seem real", he wrote.

"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". But this is about so much more. "It's not just the club". Your endless contribution to Leicester's hospitals and charities will never be forgotten. So hard working, so passionate, so kind and so generous in the extreme. You had time for everyone. "Believe us when we say he's the best".

"You changed football. Forever!" Not many people have done that.

'He will be missed by all fans of the sport and everyone lucky enough to have known him'.

"Words can't describe how I feel".

"But what I am most proud of is to have been part of your vision".

He said: "It is impossible to overestimate the impact Leicester City have had on our city". For this I am eternally grateful to have known you and grown close to you and your unbelievable family and for all the private moments and joint experiences I had with you on a personal level. That you won't be there having fun and laughing with the boys and seeing your infectious smile and enthusiasm that rubbed off on everyone you came into contact with.

Now, we're not talking brand-new supercars for the players or multimillion-pound donations to local causes, but there are so numerous very smallest of gestures which have been absent and have contributed to disconnection between club and fans, and that includes simply talking. From knowing you we do this by being the family you created.

"I am truly honoured and privileged to have been a small part of your life".

Wes Morgan was the captain of that side and said: "Absolutely heartbroken and devastated regarding the news of our chairman".

"Everyone at the club has been truly touched by the remarkable response of the football family, whose thoughtful messages of support and solidarity have been deeply appreciated at this hard time", Leicester said.

His blue helicopter took off from the pitch after the stadium emptied following Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham, but crashed moments later in the auto park.

Vichai, the Thai billionaire owner of retail company King Power, and four other people died when the helicopter spiraled out of control as it left the stadium following a Premier League game.

Leicester's EFL Cup tie against Southampton and the development squad's match against Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup on Tuesday have both been postponed.
