Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five victims in a helicopter crash at the ground following Leicester's 1-1 draw with West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

Leicester were due to play Southampton tonight at the King Power Stadium but that Carabao Cup tie was postponed on Sunday.

Cardiff executive director and chief executive Ken Choo also offered the Bluebirds' support ahead of the weekend.

"Following Saturday evening's bad events at King Power Stadium, the thoughts and feelings of Leicester City FC are at the forefront of our minds", Choo said in a statement on the club's website.

The Belgian second division club were set to play Lommel on Wednesday but have put off the tie until December 4, the Belgian Football Association said on Tuesday.

The two teams said Tuesday the match will go ahead as planned in the Welsh capital, with a minute's silence before kickoff and players wearing black armbands as a mark of respect for Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people who were killed in the tragedy.

Thai businessman Srivaddhanaprabha oversaw Leicester's remarkable Premier League triumph in 2015-16.

Pearson is credited with saving Leicester from relegation in 2014-15, his side winning seven of their last eight matches, before he was sacked after disagreements with the board.

After the tragic news of Srivaddhanaprabha's death, Pearson has written a letter in tribute to his former colleague, saying "his quiet yet authoritative aura, presence and personality have had an immeasurable influence on English football".

Leicester opened a book of condolence inside a specially erected marquee in memory of Vichai on Tuesday, as more supporters and people from the wider community arrived at the stadium to pay their respects.

"It is with extreme difficulty that I write to express and offer my honest condolences and support to the Srivaddhanaprabha and wider King Power family", Pearson said in a statement on Leuven's website.

Books of condolence have been opened at the King Power Stadium and are available from 8am to 10pm every day.

On Monday, the Leicester squad and members of the Srivaddhanaprabha family visited the stadium and held a touching tribute on the pitch.

The UK's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said it had recovered the flight data recorder and would continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
