The fate of the architect of one of the greatest global sports stories of this decade is unknown. Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha usually travels by helicopter to get back and forth from King Power Stadium for Premier League matches. That helicopter crashed tonight in the parking lot just outside the stadium after the Foxes tied West Ham 1-1. It exploded and was in flames soon after. Leicester City shocked the world by winning that league in 2016 after starting the season as five-thousand-to-one underdogs. The team's owner is a Thai billionaire who started King Power. It was his habit to have a plane land in the middle of the stadium for him and his family to travel home.
