The Leicester City players who lifted the Premier League trophy have been presented with a £100,00 sports car each. Leicester City’s Thai chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has forked out nearly £2 million to buy 19 BMW i8’s for the members of last season’s squad of champions.
The players were presented with the cars as a thank-you at the King Power Stadium. The hybrid sports cars, with a top speed of 160mph, are all in Leicester City blue and were lined up in a row at the ground.
The classy gifts come just days before Claudio Ranieri’s players need to put in a top performance to beat Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in Sunday’s Community Shield game at Wembley.
