Mr Srivaddhanaprabha, always attend and leave every game involving the team in his private helicopter since he became the chairman of the club in 2011. The billionaire business tycoon bought the team for £39 million in 2010 and under his ownership the club rose out of the Championship and eventually won the Premier League for the first time in its history in 2015. He is also praised for his charity work, donating £2 million towards a new children’s hospital in the UK. He was age 60.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
