Premier League club Leicester City has launched an investigation after three players filmed themselves taking part in a sickening orgy in which a Thai woman was racially abused.
A shameful video has emerged showing James Pearson, 21 - the son of club manager Nigel Pearson - Adam Smith, 22, and Tom Hopper, 21, taking part in a depraved sex session in Thailand during an end-of-season tour.

One of the young players also taunts one of the women for being f***** minging' before saying: 'She's an absolute one out of ten.' 
The footage, obtained by the Sunday Mirror, will be a huge embarrassment for the club manager, who is an outspoken ambassador for the Kick It Out scheme, the campaign to end racism in football.
It will also be a huge blow to the club's Thai owners Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha who have worked hard to form a partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, one of the club's sponsors. 
This afternoon, following outrage from several Leicester City fans, a club spokesman said action would be taken 'if necessary'.

He said: 'We take the conduct of our players at every level extremely seriously and will take appropriate action, if necessary, once the full facts of the situation have been established.
'Pending the outcome of an internal investigation, the Club will make no further comment.' 
The video - who includes a running commentary of the lewd sex acts - begins with the three players stripped naked and joking around as they engage in sex acts with the women.
Amid a tirade of abuse, the stars make a series of degrading comments about the two women. After calling her 'minging', one of the players is heard shouting: 'Oi Hops, I'll swap you.'
They also egg each other on as they shout encouraging comments to the women such as 'Go on love'. The players make several other vile comments which are too graphic to print.

According to the newspaper, the men then watch as the woman engage in sexual acts together before Hopper and Pearson give one another a celebratory high-five. 
The events unfolded while the players were touring Thailand after their sensational season climax. The paper reports that the clip was shared by one of the players among friends.
This morning, as news of the scandal emerged, all three players deleted their Twitter accounts. The club, which are said to be aware of what happened, are unavailable for comment.   
The club previously said that the support of the authority had been 'vital' in helping promote the club to a Thai audience. 
The authority's 'Amazing Thailand' branding has appeared on the back of team shirts for the last two years.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand began its partnership with Leicester City at the start of the 2012/13 season, two years after the Club was taken over by the current owners. 
Pearson, a defender, signed for Leicester in July 2013, before being loaned to Peterborough.  
Striker Hopper began his career with Boston United, before signing for Leicester City in October 2011. He was loaned to Bury for part of this season. 
Smith, a goalkeeper, signed for the club in August 2011 from Middlesbrough. He was loaned to Mansfield Town for part of the season.
