Leicester City manager Claude Puel has confirmed he is safe and well after last night’s horrific helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium.

The BBC are reporting that a source close to the family of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has confirmed the club owner was on-board the helicopter at the time of the crash, while Reuters report that a source close to the club has confirmed there were four further passengers.

Their identities are yet to be confirmed but Puel has declared himself safe, telling Radio France: “It is a tragedy for the club.

“All of my thoughts are with the victims and their families and I want reassure all the people who are concerned about me. I am distraught, but I am well.”

Crowds have been forming at the stadium throughout the day, with many people turning up to lay flowers and shirts outside the stadium.

A further statement is expected from Leicester City in due course.
