The football world has come together in the wake of Saturday's helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium.

Shortly after Leicester City's draw with West Ham, emergency services responded to the scene of a helicopter crash in the car park just outside the stadium.

The helicopter belonged to chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who bought the club in August 2010 and was named chairman in February 2011 before overseeing Leicester's Premier League triumph in 2016.

It is not clear who was on board the helicopter or what condition those impacted are in. 

While information remains scarce, many players, clubs and personalities came together to offer prayers for those impacted by the crash.
