This is the shocking moment a heartless thief STOLE a Leicester City shirt left outside the Thai embassy in tribute to the club’s tragic owner.
A fan placed a scarf, shirt and handwritten note outside London’s Royal Thai Embassy in memory of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash at the ground.
But footage shows a man hanging around outside and waiting for the street to clear, before stuffing the football shirt into his backpack.
The shirt was stolen just three hours after it had been placed there by a fan who wrote: “R.I.P Vichai, you made every Leicester fans dream a reality.”
Mr Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter crashed when he was leaving the King Power stadium on Saturday.
He died alongside assistants Kavenporn Punpare and Nusara Suknamai, 33, pilot Eric Swaffer, 53, and his girlfriend co-pilot Izabela Roza Lechowicz, 46.
The shirt and scarf was placed outside the Royal Thai Embassy in Queen’s Gate, South Kensington, at around midday.
But the timestamp on the footage shows it was taken by a man wearing dark clothes and a backpack at around 3.12pm.
The footage shows him using his phone while hanging around inside the outer porch of the embassy.
He appears to wait for at least one person who was waiting to go into the embassy, before walking up to the tribute and moving the scarf to one side.
The man then slides the note off, and in one movement grabs the shirt and shoves it in a big he throws over his shoulder, before walking off.
The Met Police said the theft had not been reported to the force.
