Saturday was the first day of a week-long funeral ceremony for Vichai who was killed, along with four others, when his helicopter came down in a auto park outside Leicester City stadium last Saturday, just moments after the game had finished.

An elaborate funeral has begun for Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died last week when his helicopter crashed in a auto park next to the English Premier League club's stadium.
Using the profits from his monopoly, he bought Leicester City and helped turn them from an unremarkable English club into the surprise winners of the Premier League title in 2016.
Leicester's players huddled together after the game before joining the team's staff to applaud the visiting fans who made the trip to Wales.
The Bluebirds introduced the hashtag "TogetherForLeicester" for the game to show unity following a tragedy that rendered the action on the pitch irrelevant. The match was dedicated to the victims, with Cardiff owner Vincent Tan writing in the match programme that Srivaddhanaprabha's legacy would live forever.

"It's the quality of the players they have".
"It emanated from Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha". "The world of football lost a true pioneer and a visionary seven days ago", Tan wrote. The Leicester fans sang Vichai's name for the rest of a highly charged afternoon.
The players warmed up in similar T-shirts over their training gear.
A giant banner with the logos of both clubs alongside the flag of Vichai's native Thailand was passed between home and visiting fans, while other tributes were abundant around the ground. In front of them the entire Leicester squad, the backroom staff, the manager and the players who had just recorded a most appropriate victory, applauded their support, savouring the solidarity before they took a flight to Thailand to attend his funeral.
Outside the temple on Saturday, Kiatisuk "Zico" Senamuang, a former Thai national soccer player and coach who was also at the Leicester match, told reporters that worldwide soccer world had lost an important patron.
