City owners honoured with incomprehensible surname

Leicester City's owners have been granted a new honorific title by the King of Thailand and will change their surname as part of the custom.

Club Chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn and his son, Vice-Chairman Aiyawatt, will from now on be known by the name Srivaddhanaprabha following a royal charter awarded to those doing great service to Thailand.

The honour is usually reserved for those heir to the Thai throne or who have done service to the Thai royal family, but in some circumstances is bestowed upon those who are deemed to have done good for the nation.
