Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy won £30,000 at a casino — after winning the Community Shield at Wembley.

His lucky streak continued as he gambled with team-mates, in a party organised by the club's chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Thai businessman is said to have hired the Park Lane Casino in London's Mayfair, and was handing out gambling chips worth £1,000.

A source told The Sun: “Aiyawatt hired out the casino exclusively and the team travelled there immediately after winning the Community Shield.

“When they won the FA Cup back in May Covid restrictions were still in place, so this was a double celebration and they had a great night.

“The entire team was on a high, and everyone were in great spirits, enjoying having a few drinks and trying their luck on the casino tables.

“Aiyawatt, who is known as Top by the team, was handing out £1,000 chips and Jamie walked away with £30,000 after a run of luck. So that was a nice bonus for him."
