UPDATED 3:30 p.m. ET: This article has been updated to include an additional response from the Leicester City team.

Three English professional soccer players filmed themselves having sex with women in Thailand and using racially abusive terms, the Sunday Mirror reported, posting an edited version of the video. The three Leicester City players were in Thailand -- the home country of the owner of the club -- celebrating the end of their season.  

The three men are shown in the video in a variety of sexual positions and cheering each other as they go, including at one point offering to swap partners. Off camera, one of them uses a racial slur to describe one of the women based on the shape of her eyes, the Mirror reported. At anoter point, one of the men disparages one of the women's appearance with another racial term, the paper reported.

The video shows defender James Pearson, the 22 year old son of the Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson, along with striker Tom Hopper, 21 and goalkeeper Adam Smith, 22.

"We take the conduct of our players at every level extremely seriously and will take appropriate action, if necessary, once the full facts of the situation have been established,” a Leicester City spokesman told Sky News

In a second statement, the team said the three players are headed back to England. "Following a preliminary meeting in consultation with the three players earlier today, the players involved in the incident are now returning to the UK, in advance of the rest of the squad," the statement said. "Tom Hopper, James Pearson and Adam Smith would like to convey their sincere apologies for their behaviour – to the women involved in the incident, to the Club and its owners, to the Club’s fans and to their families."

The team was in Thailand as part of a goodwill tour, the Leicester Mercury reported. The English team is owned by Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, a Thai billionaire who made his money with a duty-free company called King Power.

One of the players shared the video with friends back in the U.K., leading to the eventual leak to the press, The Guardian reported.

European soccer has struggled with a number of racist incidents. Earlier this year, fans of the English team Chelsea refused to let a black man on a train in Paris while chanting “we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it.”

Incidents haven’t been limited to fans. While playing for the English team Liverpool, Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan player who was booted from the World Cup for biting a player, was fined and banned from games for using racial slurs on the field directed at Patrice Evra. The Premier League has sought to try to curb the racism. The league launched a program called Kick It Out and Nigel Pearson has been a vocal supporter.  

Leicester City players were in Thailand as part of a post-season celebration that the team avoided relegation and will remain in England’s top soccer league. In English soccer, teams that finish at the bottom of the standings at the end of the year are relegated to a lower division. Leicester City had only spent one year in the top league -- the Premier League - and therefore were at the highest risk of being relegated. The team split a £5 million bonus for being able to avoid relegation.
