Leicester's Carabao Cup clash with Southampton and the development squad's fixture against Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup have been postponed.

Srivaddhanaprabha's family visited the mass of memorials that have appeared near the crash site outside the club stadium on Sunday, accompanied by Leicester City players and staff.

Earlier in the day, Leicester opened a book of condolence in memory of Srivaddhanaprabha on Tuesday morning at 8am where fans and people from the wider community in Leicester can come and write their messages in the book of condolence inside a specially-erected marquee.

The helicopter went down after clearing King Power Stadium at 20:30 BST.

That hardly made for great PR for the most marketed football league in the world, and it probably didn't help the quality on show between two of the Premier League's top clubs, who both play an attractive passing game. May said her thoughts were with the family and friends of the victims as well as supporters of the club.

Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha was killed on Saturday when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium and the Algerian winger looked to the heavens after his decisive sixth-minute goal.

Mahrez, part of the Foxes' legendary title-winning team of 2016, pointed to the heavens after scoring the only goal of the game against Tottenham at Wembley.

On Friday, the team hosts its first and only home event of the fall portion of the season with SC visiting Koury Natatorium. Virginia got things starts in the first half when it scored on the first drive of the game before UNC tied it up 7 to 7.

"The outpouring of grief is a testament to how many people's lives were touched by those on board, " Prime Minister Theresa May said.

"It's unusual", he had said, "because my feeling is the worst feeling I've had in the five years that I've been here".

The Premier League statement also revealed that as a mark of respect, all PL players will wear black armbands in their fixtures at the weekend.

Many fans have confirmed they plan to do a minute's applause during the 60th minute of all of Leicester's games between now and the end the season.

Meanwhile, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) continue to conduct its investigations as it tries to establish what caused Saturday's tragedy. "We have a lot of things to improve", he said.

Police have not given an update on the investigation but wrote on Twitter its drone "was not in flight at the time the helicopter left the stadium".
