Budding Leicester City stars, including the son of manager Nigel Pearson, were filmed racially abusing a girl during an orgy on a post-season tour of Thailand.

James Pearson, Tom Hopper and Adam Smith appear in video – filmed in a hotel room – where a Thai woman is called a "slit eye".

In the video, which was obtained by the Sunday Mirror, Hopper, 22, calls a woman "minging" before the trio watch the women indulging in lesbian sex acts.

During the romp Hopper and Pearson, who has captained the Leicester City youth team, high-five each other as if celebrating a goal while romping with two of the women.

The incident is likely to spark behind-the-scenes discussions at Leicester, whose owners are Thai father and son Vichai and ­Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha. One of the club's main sponsors is the Tourism Authority of Thailand, whose "Amazing Thailand" slogan features on the club's shirt.

The Srivaddhanaprabhas have ploughed millions into the club since they took over in 2010 and were rewarded when the Foxes were promoted to the Premier League last season.

A £5m treasure trove was shared out amongst staff at the end of this season after boss Nigel Pearson steered it clear of the relegation zone after a late surge up the league.

Leicester City has announced it will launch an internal investigation into the incident.
