The team travelled just a day after the Premier League victory parade through the city centre after a remarkable end to their season.

Claudio Ranieri and his team defied their 5000/1 odds to win the English Premier League title by 10 points having struggled for a stay in top flight last season.

The Leicester City players were mobbed after arriving at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.

Players of the club were in good mood as the celebrations continued with coach Claudio Ranieri, keeper Kasper Schmeichel and Shinji Okazaki greeted the people of Thailand with a traditional Thai ‘wai’ gesture.

“We've had some special receptions when we've arrived in Thailand in the past, but nothing like this. This is incredible.

“We're always extremely proud to come here and we know how much it means to the owners, who have done so much for us and for the entire club in the last six years.

“Since we won the title, we've been trying to take it all in and try to get some perspective on what it means to us and to other people. After the scenes in the streets of Leicester on Monday and this reception we've had today, it's starting to sink in. The impact is just frightening,” Morgan told the club’s official website.

Top scorer Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante missed the trip as they prepare for rEuro 2016 with England and France respectively. Riyad Mahrez also missed the visit to Thailand.

Jeffrey Schlupp is an academy graduate of Leicester City and won the Young Player of the Season at the club’s awards night. Daniel Amartey joined the Premier League champions in the January transfer window.
