Foxes sack 'Thai three'

Leicester have sacked Tom Hopper, Adam Smith and James Pearson for their part in in a sexually-explicit video during which racist language was used.

Pearson, son of Foxes boss Nigel, and his two team-mates appeared together in a leaked video from the club's 'goodwill tour' of Thailand, during which a variety of crude remarks are made including one of two Thai women being called a "slit-eye".

After an internal investigation Leicester, whose owners Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha are from Thailand, have terminated the trio's contracts.
