Tottenham's pre-season friendly with Leicester at Rajamangala National Stadiuma in Thailand on Sunday has been cancelled due to poor weather conditions.

Spurs were due to play their second friendly of the summer after losing 3-2 to West Ham, while Leicester had previously beaten Northampton Town and OH Leuven.

Heavy rainfall led to a waterlogged pitch at Thailand's national stadium. Starting XIs had been announced and warm-ups took place before the kick-off time was pushed back. The complete cancellation of the fixture was then announced.

A statement from Spurs reads: "Tonight's friendly against Leicester City has been cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch and adverse weather conditions.



"The event organisers, based on a recommendation from the match officials, deemed the pitch at the Rajamangala National Stadium unplayable and unsafe following heavy rainfall in Bangkok."

Tottenham's next scheduled game in pre-season is on 26 July when they face Singapore side Lion City Sailors in Kallang. Ange Postecoglou's side then fly home for a clash with Shakhtar Donetsk in north London before facing Barcelona in Joan Gamper Trophy.

Leicester also visit Kallang next week, taking on Premier League side Liverpool for their final pre-season game before the Championship begins.
