LONDON, June 16, 2016 – A host of celebrity figures from the world of sport and entertainment enjoyed the skill and athleticism of the world’s leading polo players competing in the 12th Laureus King Power Polo Cup, while raising funds for Laureus Sport for Good.

Chairman of Premier League champions Leicester City and Laureus Ambassador Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was joined by TV presenter Emma Willis, England cricket star Jonny Bairstow and a host of celebrity guests including Lady Kitty Spencer, and Hugo Taylor, star of TV show Made in Chelsea.

Some of the world’s leading polo players were in action, competing for a team sponsored by AMG, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz, against a team representing Polo Club St Tropez. They included Gonzalito Pieres, David ‘Pelon’ Stiring, Pablo MacDonough, Marcos di Paola and Top and Tal Srivaddhanaprabha, sons of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. After an exciting encounter, Polo Club St Tropez came out on top beating Mercedes-AMG 7-5.
