Leeds United players shared a poignant message ahead of kick off against Wigan Athletic.

The shirts used to warm up before kick-off were emblazoned with the heartfelt message to Premier League club Leicester City "Together with Leicester" with the badges of both clubs.

The message comes after Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people lost their lives in a helicopter crash outside the club's King Power Stadium last Saturday.

The helicopter plunged from a height of around 200 feet and crashed close to the ground following a home match against West Ham United.

Pilot Eric Swaffer, his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz, who is also a pilot, and two members of Srivaddhanaprabha's staff, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, were also killed.
