Leicester City paid their respects to mark the first anniversary of a helicopter crash which claimed five lives including the club's chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha before their match on Saturday.

Fans, players and referees observed a minute's silence in memory of Vichai at the King Power Stadium before the game against Burnley.

Leicester came from behind to win 2-1 and moved to third in the table behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

"Your always in our hearts boss. Three points that we had to fight for today when not at our best just how you wanted us to play," James Maddison tweeted with the #LCFCfamily hashtag. "Grit, fight and that never say die attitude. Hope we're doing you proud Vichai."

"A very emotional game with a great result. Thank you for all your support!" Christian Fuchs tweeted.

Vichai was among three Thais and two foreigners killed when his helicopter crashed and burst into flames outside the stadium on Oct 27 last year. His son Aiyawatt vowed to carry on his late father's "vision and dreams" after he took over the club from him after the crash.
