Sorry: Leicester Players apologise for ‘Racist Sex Video’


Three Leicester City players have apologised after a sexually explicit video emerged in which a Thai woman was allegedly racially abused.

The footballers apparently filmed three Thai women engaging in sex acts in a hotel room, when one of the players appears to refer to one woman as a “slit eye”.

The Premier League club said it was “deeply concerned” over the incident involving defender James Pearson, the 22-year-old son of the club’s manager Nigel, striker Tom Hopper, 21, and goalkeeper Adam Smith, 22.

The men appear to be naked and laughing while the video – obtained by the Sunday Mirror – is filmed.

One of the footballers is also apparently heard making derogatory comments about one of the women’s looks, saying she is “minging … an absolute one out of 10”.

A statement from the club said: “Following a preliminary meeting in consultation with the three players earlier today, the players involved in the incident are now returning to the UK, in advance of the rest of the squad.

“Tom Hopper, James Pearson and Adam Smith would like to convey their sincere apologies for their behaviour – to the women involved in the incident, to the Club and its owners, to the Club’s fans and to their families.” 

The club added it was investigating the matter.
All three players have since taken down their Twitter profiles, but the club declined to comment on whether this was linked to the video.

The footage was apparently filmed while the team was in Thailand celebrating staying up in the Premier League.

Leicester City is owned by Thai billionaires, father and son Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

Fans of the club shared their disgust on the forum FoxesTalk, where one posted: “Get rid of them, never getting near our squad anyway.”

Another wrote: “Disgusting and inexcusable behaviour, exactly the sort of stuff that gives British tourists a bad name when we go abroad.

“It’s especially disappointing given the efforts the owners are going to ensure we’re a popular club in Thailand.”

Leicester City has been in a partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand for three years and their shirts have “Amazing Thailand” branding on the back.
