BBC Sport Editor Dan Roan has been slammed by outraged fans after being caught on camera claiming the former beauty queen killed alongside the Leicester City owner was his mistress.
Roan was standing outside Leicester's King Power stadium when his private conversation was picked up by a nearby camera recording for an online live stream.
Standing next to the thousands of tributes left by fans, he was filmed talking about Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's personal assistant Nusara Suknamai.
Referring to Ms Suknamai, he said 'As opposed to the mistress who died in the crash, otherwise known as member of staff, i.e. mistress... family man...'
He then added: 'But that's what you do if you are a billionaire or royalty, it's relatively expected so we shouldn't judge.'  
The ex-beauty queen turned personal assistant was killed in Saturday night's horror helicopter crash, along with her boss, 60, his pilot Eric Swaffer, 53, his girlfriend Izabela Roza Lechowicz, 46 and another employee Kaveporn Punpare. 
When the footage was spotted by fans on social media, they were quick to condemn his 'disrespectful comments'. 
One user wrote: 'It doesn't matter that it was private, or off-air, you were stood 5 yards away from his memorial.
'So disrespectful, so thoughtless and 'hurtful.'
'You should be ashamed. Please don't come anywhere near my football club again.'
Another user also suggested the senior editor might not be welcome at the club anymore, he said: 'Please leave Leicester and do not return.
'I don't care if it was a private, off air conversation.
'The fact you've said what you have in our darkest hour shows what kind of person you are.'
Roan was picked up on a Sky News live feed broadcasting to thousands on video sharing website YouTube. 
Senior BBC journalist Roan apologised on Twitter for the mistake, posting: 'Just want to say sorry for some comments made in a private, off-air conversation earlier with a colleague. Absolutely no offence intended.'
A spokesman for the BBC added: 'This was an ill-judged comment made in a private off-air conversation for which Dan has apologised.'
